Website: National Park Service Centennial Science and Stewardship Symposium

Panel: "Science Communication and Collaboration: Getting the Science from the Heads of the Researchers into the Hearts of the People"

Day: Thursday, 20 October
Time: 9:30 am – 11:00 am
Location: Wood Center, Conference Room EF

Janet Warburton, ARCUS, will be presenting on a panel session on science communication.

Panel Description:

This session explores existing communities of practice currently engaged in research and science communication around Alaska and incorporates multiple perspectives and strategies. We will begin with short presentations from three outreach communities - the Earth to Sky Interagency Partnership, Arctic Research Consortium of the US (ARCUS), and the Sea Grant Program. We will then facilitate a dialogue engaging all participants by exploring a series of questions, building on what has been presented so far and exploring ways to collaborate further. The goal is to examine what models are working, to identify innovative products and new strategies, and to envision successful approaches for the future.

A poster session associated with this topic is also planned.
