COMPASS Communications Training

COMPASS is a non-profit, non-advocacy organization that helps scientists build the knowledge, skills, and networks they need to effectively engage in public discourse and decision-making about the environment. Participating in a COMPASS training gives you the opportunity to workshop your science in a practical way, reflect on the “so what” of your science, meet journalists and policymakers whose work is relevant to your science, and become part of a community of scientists who encourage and support each other to get out of their labs and engage with the real world.
