Communicating Science Up and Down in the Gulf of California
N-Gen held the workshop “Communicating Science Up and Down in the Gulf of California” December 7-9, 2016 at CICESE in Ensenada, Baja California. Twenty participants were selected along with 18 invited speakers from Mexico and the United States, supported by the University of Arizona-CONACYT Consortium for Arid Environments (CAZMEX) and the Agnese Nelms Haury Program in Environment and Social Justice. The main objective of the workshop was to provide tools to improve the communication of the results of scientific research. The response to the workshop call was impressive, with about 80 requests to participate, making it clear that there is a significant interest in the topic in the N-Gen community.
This workshop represents a first step in N-Gen’s efforts to strengthen the capacity of our network to communicate the diverse and excellent science undertaken in the region.
