Bringing Science to the table - Stories, tips and lessons-learned from working with communities

Helping scientists effectively communicate environmental health, safety and resiliency issues with the public is the focus of a new series thanks to a network of environmental science outreach staff at CU Boulder.

On Thursday, Oct. 20, Raj Pandya, the director of the Thriving Earth Exchange at the American Geophysical Union, will be visiting CU Boulder to kick off the Engaged Scientist Series, which will include a talk and a workshop to be co-led with Ben Kirshner, the director of CU Engage.

Dr. Pandya’s public lecture will be held from 4 to 5 p.m. at the CIRES Auditorium. It will be followed by a workshop from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the CIRES Fellows Room S274 for graduate students on developing strong scientist/community partnerships co-led with Ben Kirshner, faculty director of CU Engage.

The series is hosted by the new Albert A. Bartlett Center for Science Communication, CIRES Education and Outreach, INSTAAR, and Learn More About Climate at the Office for Outreach and Engagement. Other events in the series will focus on community dialogue and engaging with diverse communities.

Please RSVP for the free, public lecture.
