Many science communication practitioners find themselves working on issues that are emotional, contentious, and sometimes traumatic. The traditional science communication tools of perfecting a presentation, message, or frame fall short in the face of these kinds of challenges. This talk will focus on a different way of approaching science communication with tools that including relating, listening, working with conflict, and understanding trauma, all with an eye toward justice and community care. Kearns is a scientist and science communication practitioner with over 25 years experience working on water, wildfire, and climate change in Washington D.C. and the western U.S.
The Washington State Section of the American Water Resources Association (AWRA) is seeking nominations for its 2021 – 22 Fellowship Award. For the 2020 – 21 academic year two fellowships will be given. One award will be to a member of a Washington Section affiliated Student Chapter. The other award will go to a student enrolled in a graduate program at a college or university in Washington State. Both fellowships are for a full-time graduate student completing an advanced degree in an interdisciplinary water resources subject. In addition to $2500 in cash, the award includes a one-year membership in both the State and National AWRA, a one-year subscription to the Journal of the American Water Resources Association, and admission to the Washington State Section Annual Conference.
