  Information - ES5 Education and Public Outreach in support of International Scientific Years

Event Information
International scientific years, such as the International Polar Year, the International Heliophysical Year, the Electronic Geophysical Year and other efforts, have great potential for galvanizing global interest in geosciences. Each of the international years serves to coordinate and focus scientific work within the discipline, but also intend to communicate with, inspire and educate the public. Realizing the potential of these efforts requires coordination not only between scientists and educators, but also between nations. While scientific research is increasingly conducted through international collaborations, the education and public outreach community has been historically local and national in scope. This session will provide members an opportunity to learn more about the communication and education plans of the international years, find interdisciplinary and international collaborators, and highlight projects intended to support these efforts
