The University of Maine is scheduled to host a second annual Climate Change Workshop, “Communicating Climate Change Science,” Tuesday and Wednesday, July 18 and 19.

This online professional development program, developed in partnership by the UMaine Climate Change Institute (CCI) and Division of Lifelong Learning, will feature keynote talks and interactive sessions on interdisciplinary climate change topics, led by experts from CCI and University of Maine at Farmington.

“Climate change impacts us all,” said Seth Campbell, associate professor of glaciology at CCI and School of Earth & Climate Sciences, according to a news release from UMaine. “Improving climate education is one of the most important steps we can take to shift our trajectory towards a more sustainable future.”

Workshop participants are eligible to earn continuing education units.

There also is a concurrent three-week graduate course offered through Summer University, Seminar in Quaternary Studies, from July 10-28 for those interested in a deeper exploration of best practices for climate science communication.

Registration for the workshop is now open. For program and registration details, visit or email
