Presenter: Susan Joy Hassol, Director of Climate Communications: science and outreach

Making complex issues such as Climate Change understandable and relatable to our students and greater community can be a challenging task, to say the least. Making sense of past, current, and future climate conditions is more complex than simply looking at CO2 and temperature values.  And understanding how climate change effects on our nation's environmental and economical securities plays a role in how we manage and influence climate change. This webinar will present some climate communication strategies that are simple and memorable. Our presenter will include a discussion of making more effective use of imagery, metaphor, and narrative; in short, how to be a better storyteller of the most important story there is to tell.
