Funded by the International Association for Media and Communication Research (IAMCR) and awarded in collaboration with the International Environmental Communication Association (IECA), the US$1,000 award seeks to encourage a wide range of researchers to think creatively about new directions for research. Media/communication researchers with interest in climate issues are encouraged to apply, from all fields of media/communication, and all career stages. Interdisciplinary collaborations are encouraged.

This film kicks off the Sustainable Science Communication Conference, all day at Corwin Pavilion, Thursday May 14. The conference itself consists of four panels (Content, Audience, Media, Impact) beginning at 9:30 am at UC Santa Barbara’s Corwin Pavilion. No registration is necessary.
