CliMathNet Virtual Outreach Conference 2016
2 - 4pm, 21st June 2016, University of Exeter.
CliMathNet Virutal Outreach Conference 2016: Reaching out from Maths and Environmental Science.
The purpose of this virtual meeting will be to discuss how best to communicate climate, environmental and mathematical science to the public and other non-academic audiences. Through the use of examples of best practice, we aim to inspire and provide guidance on the delivery of effective outreach activities to:
b) General public,
d) Commercial / Industrial partners.
In addition, we will aim to provide guidance, support and information regarding Outreach funding.
The conference schedule will include an hour long "Show & Tell" session, where experienced Outreach Practionors will give examples of best practise and share their outreach experiences. Following this there will be an interactive Panel Discussion, in which we will discuss the best way forward for delivering effective outreach communications for climate, environmental and mathematical sciences.
This Virtual Conference will be delivered live using the web videoconferencing service WebEx. In order to receive, you will get a link from a CliMathNet newsletter nearer to the Conference date, which will download an application to your computer.
