Improve Understanding, Build Hope and Empower Visitors To Act on Climate! A NNOCCI Introductory Workshop

Friday, September 28, 2018: 9:00 AM-5:30 PM
Connecticut Convention Center
Session Leader:

Hannah Pickard, NNOCCI Program Manager, New England Aquarium and John Anderson, Director of Education, New England Aquarium

The public trusts informal science centers and so the desire to use our positions to help the country move forward with productive climate solutions is high. 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 we’ve designed an evidence-based approach to climate change communication that empowers educators and visitors as active citizens. Our workshop will teach the basics of our 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)
