Association of Polar Early Career Scientists

APECS organized a small Science Communications and Media Training Workshop at the Young Scientist Forum activities for the Arctic Frontiers 2014 Conferences. The workshop happened on 19 January 2014 and brought together a small group of early career researchers attending the conference to learn about ways how to use social media (especially Twitter) for your science communication as well as tips and tricks on how to work with the media and how journalists find their science stories.

Mentors for the workshop were Tom Fries (Arctic Council Secretariat, Norway), Patricia Azinhaga (University of Coimbra, Portugal), Jose Xavier (University of Coimbra, Portugal), Bjørn Lindahl (Svenksa Dagbladet, Sweden), Malin Avenius (frilans, Sverige Radio), Tom Yulsman (Univrsity of Colorado, United States).

We want to thank the mentors for taking their time to join us for this event and providing advice to our participants and thank you also to the participants for a great and very interesting discussion.ArcticFrontiers Science Workshop2014 1
