Learn How to Communicate Science Effectively at Oct. 5-7 weekend

A diverse array of science and media practitioners will gather in Keene, New Hampshire, October 5-7 at Antioch University New England to explore innovative ways to convey environmental and scientific information.

The Communicating Science weekend of workshops is designed to help individuals and organizations more effectively communicate complex scientific information and environmental issues, and to craft ingenious and compelling content across a spectrum of media.

The keynote presenters are noted ecologists Amy Seidl and Tom Wessels.

Among the innovative individuals and organizations are expert panelists Jim Rubens, Herman Karl and staff from Orion Magazine. There will be performances by the interactive musical Climate Change Co-Opera and singer songwriter Erica Wheeler, as well as a screening of the feature documentary Kansas vs. Darwin.

A locavore lunch Saturday will be prepared by culinary director/eco-gastronomist Ash Sheehan. Whole Terrain’s 20th Anniversary Outdoor Art Exhibition will be held in conjunction with the weekend. Whole Terrain is AUNE’s journal of reflective environmental practice.
