Early Career Climate Forum - call for participation in short survey

Opportunity Type: 
Other

The Early Career Climate Forum (ECCF, eccforum.org) was founded in 2012 by a collection of students and postdocs involved in climate work who saw a need for early career professionals to connect, collaborate, and support each other. In the last six years we’ve had 125 blogs published on the website (primarily by students and early career) on topics from work-life balance and diversity to communicating with public audiences and how to approach actionable science.

The ECCF is currently conducting an online survey to determine what our future priorities should be to serve the needs of students and early career professionals involved in climate-related work. In the past we focused on blogging and social media, but in the future we are considering expanding into podcasting, video, webinars, Facebook discussion groups, and in-person and online workshops trainings. This survey will help us assess the interests of our prospective audience (undergraduates, graduate students, postdocs and early career professionals). Completing the survey will take 7 to 10 minutes. All responses will be treated as confidential information, and participation is voluntary. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email us (ecclimateforum@gmail.com or amwootte@ou.edu).
