CAAD Data Monitor Vol.1: 15-Minute Cities

Today CAAD releases its first edition of the CAAD Data Monitor, a new monthly bulletin keeping you informed about the latest developments in climate mis- and disinformation, greenwashing, and broader influence operations worldwide.

The first edition focuses on the backlash surrounding 15-minute cities.We examine how this concept gained traction on social media platforms and became a target for various conspiracy theorist groups. Our research sheds light on the evolution of this narrative from its origins as “climate lockdowns” and explores the involvement of opposition groups. Furthermore, we provide insights on effective strategies to counteract these misleading narratives.

If you wish to stay informed and receive future editions of the CAAD Data Monitor, we invite you to sign up here.
