Getting Your Feet Wet in Science Policy: Options and Strategies for Engagement I Posters

Session ID#: 85333

Session Description:
The world's oceans face countless challenges that call for policy and management decisions informed by science. There is a growing interest among students and scientists to engage with policymakers to fill this gap. This session is intended to be a primer for scientists at all career stages who wish to become more informed about the legislative process and engage in policy. Topics to be presented include current strategies for communicating science to lawmakers, policy success stories, career advice, and the ongoing efforts and challenges in broadening the reach of science into policy and management decisions.
