TCBES Natural and Cultural Resource Seminar Series

Location: Wentworth, Room 1

Title: From science to advocacy - how to do it and why we should

Speaker: Heather Kimball, Consultant, Pacific Science Advocates

Abstract: Scientists are supposed to be objective when practicing the scientific method. As a result, many in the field are reluctant to become advocates in the policy arena. However, with global concerns like climate change, mass extinction and overuse of natural resources, not only has it become critical for scientists to advocate for fact-based policy, scientifically trained thinkers are needed to help develop increasing complicated and technical policy solutions. This discussion will use the issue of climate change as an example of an issue where the data are known, the technical solutions are possible, and yet social and political barriers impede progress. We will also discuss how to advocate for your science to policy makers and the public.
