Shaping the Future of Public Engagement with Science at LTERs: A Roundtable Discussion

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Public engagement with science (PES) researchers and practitioners are building an evidence base across several fields, including informal science education, communications, sociology, political science, and environmental science. We suggest LTER sites, with their intrinsic time investments and place-based connections to people and communities, are ideal laboratories for advancing PES. Join us for a roundtable dialogue about the potential for LTERs to serve as sites of PES innovation and for PES to expand and enrich LTER science. Intro presentations will share progress from NSF-funded PES development at Hubbard Brook and Harvard Forest. During the dialogue we hope to draw out examples of PES research and practice at other sites and plant the seeds for a PES research + practice network.
