Session Title: ED029 – Fostering Public Engagement in Polar Field Campaigns

Session Description: The polar regions are rapidly transforming in 
response to climate change and other stressors. Research is underway to 
examine a vast range of changes in the polar climate system and their 
many impacts locally, regionally, and globally. As scientists continue 
to increase understanding of the polar regions and explore these unique 
and remote areas, technological advances open exciting opportunities to 
share fieldwork experiences with broad public audiences. Fostering 
public engagement in polar field campaigns can tap into the interest the 
public already has in polar exploration and increase awareness of the 
issues facing the polar regions. This dynamic session aims to highlight 
a range of innovative ideas and techniques to connect polar field 
campaigns with students, teachers, Congress, journalists, and the 
general public. Abstracts are requested concerning new and effective 
methods to engage broad audiences and to communicate science in the 
classroom and beyond.
