Announcement: Polar Science Communication Workshop: Aug. 12-14, Boulder, CO, USA
We would like to announce an opportunity for polar
scientists of all career stages to obtain formal training in science
communication strategies during an NSF- and NASA-funded workshop held in
Boulder, CO, USA from August 12-14, 2017. The workshop will take place
immediately prior to the International Glaciological Society (IGS) International Symposium on Polar Ice, Polar
Climate, Polar Change at the University of Colorado Boulder. The workshop
will include two days of oral communication training by the Alan Alda Center
for Communicating Science and one day of written communication training by Dr.
Max Boykoff and his team from the University of Colorado Boulder.
The workshop is open to 32 polar scientists from all career
stages and spanning all science disciplines, including the social sciences. Workshop
participants do not need to attend the IGS symposium in order to participate in
the science communication workshop. Funding for domestic travel and lodging are
available for ~19 early-career scientists.
