Dear Colleagues,


ASC is hosting three symposia - Hot Air: Communicating the Science of
Climate Change


The first symposium is in Perth on Tuesday March 24 and will be focusing on
Communicating the Science of Climate Change in a sceptical world.


Dr Carmen Lawrence (ex WA Premier and Federal MP), will be talking about
stimulating behaviour changes through communication.


Panels of science communicators and scientists will be discussing the
challenges and opportunities for communication. Panel speakers include
climate scientist, Dr Graeme Pearman, science communicator, Simon Torok,
science journalist, Carmelo Amalfi, and meteorologist/communicator, Clare


Australian Media Science Centre CEO, Susannah Elliot will lead a discussion
about identifying credible experts for shaping media messages. 


UNSW's Will Rifkin will be training local science communication students to
facilitate and record the symposium's small group discussions, which aim to
identify best practice strategies, tips and examples for communicating the
science of climate change in a sceptical world. 


ASC will publish the results of the small group and plenary discussions
online and in print form after all three symposia. This process is being
sponsored by the NSW Department of Environment & Climate Change.
