Participants will be expected to work on tasks throughout the duration of the congress. Deadline for applications is on Sunday 13 May 2018.

The workshop will focus on four topics:

  • Storytelling as a tool for science communication
  • Using social media for science communication
  • Videos as a tool for science communication
  • Communicating with the Media

The workshop will include both introductory lectures and also hands-on practical parts. In addition to the workshop day, the participants will receive a task to use the skills gained during the workshop during the UArctic Congress (incl. conducting interviews). More information will be communicated to successful applicants before the workshop. The results of the workshop and message from Oulu will be communicated at the Helsinki welcoming reception on Thursday evening (Sep 6th).

As the workshop is limited to max 25 participants, you will have to apply for it. Application deadline is on Sunday 13 May 2018. We will let applicants know if they are accepted to participate in the workshop by 25 May so that successful applicants can still register for the UArctic Congress before its early bird registration deadline. The workshop is open to students at all levels as well as for other early career scientists.
