Exclusive Members Only Event (Young Professionals, Individual, Corportate or Board Members) Not yet a member?  Join here:  https://membership.keela.co/the-sustany-foundation/membership-8 ONLY 30 SEATS AVAILABLE! "Changing the Conversation on Climate Change" As part of our Professional Development series, we are excited to announce that we have coordinated with the National Network for Ocean and Climate Change Interpretation-NNOCCI to bring you this hands-on and interactive workshop usually only available as internal organizational training. Get grounded in the way Americans think about climate change and introduced to the communications tools at your disposal. We like to think of this as the NNOCCI phrasebook training. A collaborative effort of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the National Science Foundation, this socially tested training provides tools that ANYONE can use to have a conversation with ANYONE - regardless of background or profession. The framing techniques that will be explored could be applied to any communications strategy. https://climateinterpreter.org/about/projects/NNOCCI Public and higher education traditionally exist in separate spheres. And for good reason – there are different assumptions of prior knowledge, and different goals for informal educators vs. academic researchers. However, when it comes to highly-polarized topics like climate change, the typical response of leaning into the “expert researcher” role only exacerbates the divide between public opinion and the ivory tower. Meanwhile, informal learning centers like zoos, aquariums, and museums have worked more productively towards disseminating climate change knowledge without disturbing societal tensions associated with the topic. So how do they do it? And why aren’t we taking notes? Framing the story Strategic framing® is a method used in the National Network for Ocean and Climate Change Interpretation’s strategy for effective communication. It allows the communicator to orient the audience towards productive thinking in a structured manner. Program 4:30pm - Tour of Nielsen (optional) 5:30pm – 7:30pm *Light snacks will be available MAKE YOUR TRIP CARBON NEUTRAL! The Sustany Foundation contributes to emission reduction on a daily basis.
