We’re spearheading a series of projects to empower ecologists to better communicate the stories of our science (including stories about the people doing the science) in creative, compelling, and innovative ways.

Hashtags 

We encourage you to join the conversation about science communication by following the hashtags #scicomm and #ESASciComm.

During each annual meeting, you can also engage with a year-specific #ESAyyyy hashtag (e.g. #ESA2016 or #ESA2017).

We also contribute to the #scicommjob hashtag on Facebook and Twitter. Click here for details.

CURRENT ACTIVITIES

Annual meeting

Each year, we host a range of workshops, special sessions, informal social activities, and a business meeting. We highlight SciComm activities hosted by others at annual ESA meetings, too. Follow the links for this year’s conference activities and past conference info.

#MySciComm blog series

This series on our blog highlights the diverse nature of science communication careers, opportunities, and pathways through an on-going series of guest posts. Contributors (top science communicators and sciommers in training) candidly share their personal and professional journeys. Each post ends with advice and resources for people looking to enter this vital, meaningful, and expanding field.

We welcome unsolicited pitches – click here for contributor guidelines.

Our blog contributors range from journalists to filmmakers, from those at private institutions to public universities, from those formally trained to entirely self-taught. A hallmark of the #MySciComm series is the candor with which contributors detail the (rarely linear) ways they got into SciComm.

Some recent contributors include Shane Halon (American Geophysical Union & The Story Collider), Katie Burke (American Scientist magazine), Gregory Nickerson (Wyoming Migration Initiative), and Rebecca Johnson (California Academy of Sciences).
