A conversation about climate change that starts close to home can help influence the public perception of science and advance the dialogue around climate change. We encourage scientists and the science-interested public to commit to having a conversation with a friend, neighbor, colleague, or family member about how climate change is impacting local communities now, or how it may impact communities in the future.

Below are resources on climate change and science communication to help you frame your discussion. If you know of other resources we should consider sharing with our community, please email us.
