Engaged Scientist Series Public Lecture 2
Event 2: Uses and Practices of Community Dialogue in Geosciences and Environmental Sciences
As communities increasingly grapple with problems of resiliency and environmental health and safety, scientists who are equipped to help are needed. The Engaged Scientist project is a series of free public talks and associated workshops for graduate students and postdoctoral researchers. These events aim to equip scientists with community engagement skills.
The second event in the Engaged Scientist Series is scheduled on Thursday, January 19, 2017. It will be hosted in the Sustainability Innovation Lab at Colorado (SILC), room N290 at SEEC (Sustainability, Energy, and Environment Complex) on the CU Boulder east campus.
Boulder Talks director Phaedra Pezzullo and co-director Leah Sprain of the Department of Communication at the University of Colorado Boulder will give a public lecture from 4 to 5 p.m. on fostering community dialogue.
“This generation of researchers is more interested than ever in working with communities,” said Susan Sullivan, director of CIRES Education and Outreach. “Given new University investments in science communication and in demonstrating research impact, the time is right to support those interests and provide models for doing it effectively."
The third and final event in the Engaged Scientist series will focus on engaging with diverse communities.
The Engaged Scientist series is coordinated by CU's 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.
