Earth Lab EDS Seminar: The Art of Science Storytelling

Title: The Art of Science Storytelling
Speaker: Ulyana Horodyskyj Peña, North Central Climate Adaptation Science Center (NC CASC).

Abstract: The North Central Climate Adaptation Science Center is a partnership between the US Geological Survey, the University of Colorado Boulder and five consortium partners, focused on generating science and communicating it, to help resource managers adapt to a changing world. Specifically, we foster innovative and applied research in support of Tribal, federal, state, and local natural resource management and decision-making. Learn more about communicating your science through story and how to develop effective, visual and informative slides that inspire your audience to action.
