Thriving Earth Exchange Story Slam:
What does Community Science mean to you? How has it impacted your community, your work, your life? Thriving Earth Exchange has an exciting opportunity to develop and share your story at the American Geophysical Union (AGU) Meeting this December.
Science is more important than ever to meet the challenges we face, but the way we do science needs to change. Community science is a movement in science which is evolving to meet local priorities and serve the needs of people where they live. It depends on creating and sustaining partnerships that make room for many perspectives and which share the goals of community impact, equity and sound science.
We want to hear your community science story.
This year’s Thriving Earth Exchange reception will feature 3-minute pop-up style talks from community leaders and scientists. Stories will share the inspiration, actions, and outcomes of community science collaborations through personal narrative. Attendees can expect engaging tales of community and science, and the opportunity to meet and engage with like-minded individuals and potential new partners.
