Geoscience communication takes many forms, sharing information critical to society from scientist practitioners to decision makers and the public, as well as more creative interpretations by communicators seeking connection.
This symposium celebrates excellence in several important domains of modern geoscience communication: popular writing (both fiction and nonfiction), visual art, photography, music, film, mainstream media, and social media, as well as research into effective science communication. We examine inspiring examples from accomplished communicators and gain insight how best to help society enjoy a sustainable future on planet Earth (and beyond!).
