Dear fellow science policy practitioners and aficionados:

 

We kindly invite you to submit an abstract to our Science Policy session at the 2022 American Geosciences Union Fall Meeting in Chicago (and online everywhere). This session is meant to showcase efforts by the science community to develop and inform effective public policies. We encourage contributions from scientists, policy makers, and science advocates!

 

As a reminder, abstracts are due by August 3 at 23:59 EDT // 03:59 (Aug 4) GMT.

 

Abstract submission information can be found here (description copied below): https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm22/prelim.cgi/Session/160053  

 

Session ID: 160053

Title: SY022. Science Policy (Science and Society Section)

Description: Science is essential for developing effective and equitable public policies. On topics from the COVID-19 pandemic to climate change and beyond, scientists have the responsibility to provide timely, evidence-based, objective analysis to policy makers and decision makers throughout all levels of government. In this session, we seek to shine a light on the science community’s recent efforts to restore faith in the role of science in policy, from local- and community-level engagement to Federal policy making. We encourage abstract submissions that highlight specific science-based public policy initiatives as well as abstracts more broadly focused on science policy collaborations. We welcome submissions from scientists, policy makers, and science advocates who have worked at the interface of science and public policy. We especially want to highlight science communication and engagement practices that enable effective collaborations between scientists and policymakers.

 

All the best,
