The public trusts informal science centers, and so the desire is high to use our positions in helping the United States move forward with productive climate solutions. But it can be nerve-wracking to engage the public, and many institutions aren’t sure where to start. With a team of social scientists, communications strategists, climate scientists, and informal educators, the National Network for Ocean and Climate Change Interpretation (NNOCCI) has designed an evidence-based approach to climate change communication that empowers educators and visitors as active citizens. The workshop will teach the basics of NNOCCI’s methods, give you examples from peer institutions, and help you practice your new skills. Preregistration required. Limited to 40 participants. Fee: $150 per person (includes breakfast and lunch).
