Ignite Talk: Communicating Science During Controversy

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Controversial science topics can be intimidating to include in our Extension programming, but if we take on the challenge, we can have impact on some of today's most important discussions. Controversy changes the dynamics of how people incorporate science into their decision making, so we need to challange ourselves to use new methods that will diffuse polarization, be heard, and build trust.

My focus has been on using science-based communication strategies to help Extension professionals start the discussion about climate change. We are also using scenario planning as a novel method to incorporate stakeholders in Extension Programming planning. I am currently the Project Coordinator for the Animal Agriculture in a Changing Climate national Extension project. My overall programming involves the impact of livestock on agroecosystems.
