Session Title: ED029 – Fostering Public Engagement in Polar Field Campaigns

Session Description: The polar regions are rapidly transforming in response to climate change and other stressors. Research is underway to examine a vast range of changes in the polar climate system and their many impacts locally, regionally, and globally. As scientists continue to increase understanding of the polar regions and explore these unique and remote areas, technological advances open exciting opportunities to share fieldwork experiences with broad public audiences. Fostering public engagement in polar field campaigns can tap into the interest the public already has in polar exploration and increase awareness of the issues facing the polar regions. This dynamic session aims to highlight a range of innovative ideas and techniques to connect polar field campaigns with students, teachers, Congress, journalists, and the general public. Abstracts are requested concerning new and effective methods to engage broad audiences and to communicate science in the classroom and beyond.
