Summary: Science communication is changing rapidly. New technologies, shorter attention spans and dispersing audiences all have implications for how CIFOR communicates with our partners, policy makers and stakeholders.
COE’s core mission is to amplify the impact of CIFOR research by building and nurturing diverse audiences. Our approach continues to be successful, as evidenced by our growing readership, viewership and participation numbers. To build on and enhance that success, GLF is now taking on an important role in testing new models and methods of disseminating, and building a community, fostering conversation and having impact.
This presentation will consider the following:
1. COE achievements
2. Digital trends
3. GLF – community, conversation, value
