The Virtual Conference Series (VCS) is a novel science communication effort pioneered by ISGP’s “The Forum” which involves collaboration with external groups to convene social media-driven workshops on science-and-society topics. The goal of a VCS event is to use the wide reach of social media to engage viewers in live, online conversations with scientific experts, regardless of their geographic location. Initial events amassed thousands of live views from participants in 75 countries and 43 U.S. states. Find links to archived VCS sessions below, and email Aubrey Paris (firstname.lastname@example.org) to propose a VCS collaboration.
"We worked with ISGP's The Forum to develop a virtual workshop on climate geoengineering that reached 3,000 viewers in 44 countries. The Forum's leadership did a wonderful job organizing the event, which kept the workload manageable for participants (all busy faculty). Not only was the event a huge success, but it provided a valuable training opportunity for how to best engage new audiences through online and social media."
