Earth to Sky Academy

Summary: Want a stronger community of climate science communicators in your region? Become an Earth to Sky Regional Leader! In support of our community’s interest in a regional approach for climate communication, Earth to Sky (ETS) has begun developing Regional Communities of Practice in Climate Communication. Each is led by a Regional Leadership Team that has received a week’s training at an ETS Academy, followed by ongoing mentoring and support from ETS Central Leadership. The next Earth to Sky Academy will be held January 25-29, 2021 at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt MD. The Academy is tuition-free.


18th Annual Climate Prediction Applications Science Workshop

Summary: The meeting is set to happen next April 20-22, 2021, in Phoenix Arizona rather than July 2020, as it has become clear that large gatherings will not be safe into the summer months. The same venue has been confirmed for those new dates. We are hoping that next spring will be a safer time for travel and professional conferences. The organizing team will be reconvening in the early fall to start up the planning process again. The integrated theme and session/focus areas will remain the same and the agenda will remain as similar as possible to this year’s current draft, with updates as needed.
