Science in Society Opportunity for Eureka alumni and participants

During 2018, the Deep South National Science Challenge and the Science in Society group will be offering workshops and masterclasses to build skills and capacity in communication and engagement about climate change.

These workshops will be open to anyone interested - including end-users, researchers, communicators, educators and community members - and will focus on our latest understanding of the impacts and implications of climate change in New Zealand and opportunities for adaptation.

The aim is to develop a community of "Climate Ambassadors" who feel increased confidence in facilitating, enabling or contributing to critical conversations about the impacts and implications of climate change in New Zealand.

We understand that you - or your colleagues - might be interested in these workshops. 

To ensure that the workshops are successful, and tailored to your needs, please could you complete the short survey that can be found at:

The survey should take less than 10 minutes and asks for your recommendations about content, delivery style and timing/location, and also includes an opportunity for you to indicate interest in participating or presenting at these events. The deadline for the survey is Monday 22nd January. (If you return from leave after this date but still want to submit your feedback, please email us.)

Please feel free to forward this email to others who might be interested in shaping or participating in these events. Should you have any questions, feel free to contact Matt Scott (, the summer scholar who is leading this work, or myself.
