Event Type: Webinars and Virtual Events

When: 3 April 2013

Where: Online: 1700 GMT

Scientific writing is like a language. To become fluent you need to overcome a certain amount of fear. You need to repeat the techniques you have learnt so that your skills improve. Finally, you need to continue to talk this new language so that you do not forget your new skills. ClimateSnack builds on these ideas and offers an unintimidating approach to climate blogging, where the main aim is to improve writing skills as part of a community, rather than by oneself. This webinar, given by Mathew Reeve of the University of Bergen, will introduce the background to the ClimateSnack concept and how people can get involved.

APECS works with mentors and partners to develop webinars to assist APECS members and other early career scientists with their career development goals. The webinars give early career scientists a venue to learn valuable career skills that are usually not covered in their academic training. The webinar audience consists of graduate students, post-docs, and early career faculty across several disciplines. Since its inception in 2010, hundreds of people from around the world have participated in the webinars.

A recording and archive of each webinar is available on the APECS Vimeo site so that anyone can watch the videos anytime.
