A New Year’s resolution: attend/host a science communication event

“…the need to make critical decisions related to climate change, such as how to limit greenhouse gas emissions, understand and plan for potential risks, mitigate impacts to the health and well-being of humans and the natural world, and adapt to changes that cannot be prevented, makes it increasingly essential to find ways to improve productive and inclusive civic dialogue around science. Building this capacity for a more effective and equitable science communication ecosystem will require marshaling the collective strengths, creativity, and expertise of research, practice, and communities.”

The science communications from H.M.S. Challenger were “Good Words” and more

Scientists on the first oceanographic expedition realized how important it was to engage in science communication and storytelling outside of their science circles, while at sea and upon returning home. This is a good reminder that we need to continue to build upon those early messages sent via snail mail, using our modern-day technologies, to share our oceanographic work with others. Communications, no matter what the tool utilized, is key to education, engagement, excitement, and increasing science literacy across all audiences.
