Science Communication Workshop

BU URBAN is excited to offer our annual Science Communication Workshop, “Accelerating Climate Solutions,” in partnership with Sarah Finnie Robinson, a Senior Fellow at the BU Institute of Sustainable Energy and Founding Director of the 51% Percent Project.

Details: April 1, 2020, 10:00am – 12:00pm on zoom (link will be released to registrants)

Workshop participants will gain hands-on experience translating an important but not easily accessible research-based document into compelling communications. Working in small, interdisciplinary teams, participants will become familiar with the document; learn about various communication strategies, including how to select your audience and how to frame your message; choose a communication medium/platform; and start creating a product.

Before the workshop, attendees will review a toolkit of best practices and a video presentation as well as the research-based document. Reviewing these materials before the workshop is required in order to participate. Materials will be distributed 2 weeks in advance.

This workshop is open to all graduate students at BU and a required program element for 1st year BU URBAN trainees. After you’ve registered, please review the pre-workshop content here.
