AAAS Climate Stories: Getting CLEAN Input on Next Steps for "How We Respond"

Abstract:The AAAS Center for Public Engagement with Science & Technology published the first set of How We Respond stories and a plain-language report in 2019. The 18 stories and 8 short films showcased different communities taking action on climate change, using science. In 2021, AAAS released another six stories, including one short film. AAAS has shared the project in a variety of ways, such as Facebook Lives chats with participants from the communities, and posters and discussion sessions at meetings and conferences. AAAS also has been holding climate conversations workshops, developed a conversation guide for scientists interested in engaging with their own communities (a worksheet version and a longer one), and collaborated with the University of Washington's Institute for Science + Math Education to create a teaching tool using How We Respond content and examples. Most recently, several of the HWR films have been shown at film festivals around the world. AAAS would appreciate input from the CLEAN Network on who else might be interested in this project, in particular in sharing or using the films and discussion guide, and any other ideas for ways to collaborate in promoting climate conversations and action.
