COMPASS is excited to announce a two-part workshop series in conjunction with the 2024 Ocean Sciences Meeting, held in New Orleans in February 2024. Designed for physical and social scientists and technical experts working in the ocean carbon dioxide removal (oCDR) space, these workshops will help participants share their work and insights on ocean carbon dioxide removal in clear, relevant terms. Grounded in the latest research on science communication, COMPASS workshops are designed to help participants find the relevance of their science for the audiences they most want to reach—journalists, policymakers, the public, and even other scientists.

In this two-part workshop series, participants will have the opportunity to engage with top-notch science journalists who will share insights on how scientists can become excellent communicators and provide 1:1 feedback on participants’ communication messages.

Workshop Dates:

  • Session 1: February 1-2, 2024, 1-4pm ET | Virtual
  • Session 2: February 18, 9am-5pm CT | New Orleans, LA
How to Apply:

We encourage technical experts and researchers working on, or whose work has relevance to oCDR across diverse disciplines including, but not limited to, the fields of social science, governance, engineering, and geosciences, to apply.

Workshop space is limited, complete this Google form to express your interest by November 13, 2023! We will review applications on a rolling basis, and will notify participants of acceptance by mid-January, 2023. Prior to the workshop, selected participants will be expected to complete a survey to help COMPASS better understand their goals and backgrounds, and design the workshop accordingly to address said goals.
