Have you often wanted to share your expert knowledge in the public conversation about climate change, but don’t know how to get started?

ESA is recruiting ecologists for a half day workshop created by the American Association for the Advancement of Science to help ecologists develop skills for talking about climate change in public forums. The workshop, to be held on March 4th, 2015 in Washington, DC, will guide group exercises designed to help you:

  • Define your interests
  • Identify your audience
  • Explain and discuss science in accessible language
  • Respond to questions
  • Talk about uncertainty
  • Prepare for media interviews
  • Find public outreach opportunities

The workshop is also a great opportunity to initiate a network of like-minded colleagues in your area who can work together on events and share tips and experiences. This event is open to ecologists at all career stages, from graduate students to retired professionals.

The workshop is free, but space is limited. RSVP by February 13th, 2015, to secure your spot.
