Virtual Outreach Conference: Reaching out from Maths and Environmental Science. (Back to Top)

2 - 4pm, 21st June 2016, University of Exeter.

The purpose of this virtual meeting will be to discuss how best to communicate climate, environmental and mathematical science to the public and other non-academic audiences. Through the use of examples of best practice, we aim to inspire and provide guidance on the delivery of effective outreach activities to:

a) Schools,

b) General public,

c) Policymakers,

d) Commercial / Industrial partners.

In addition, we will aim to provide guidance, support and information regarding Outreach funding.

The conference schedule will include an hour long "Show & Tell" session, where experienced Outreach Practionors will give examples of best practise and share their outreach experiences. Following this there will be an interactive Panel Discussion, in which we will discuss the best way forward for delivering effective outreach communications for climate, environmental and mathematical sciences.


This Virtual Conference will be delivered live using the web videoconferencing service WebEx. Please note that you will need a reasonable broadband service and microphone/speakers to receive and participate in the Conference. In addition, a webcam is required if you are delivering the seminar.
