Session Language E
Scope Geoscience is a distinctly cross-disciplinary area of research and education. To address the grand challenges that humanity is facing, geoscientists work across disciplinary boundaries and forge new links between natural and social sciences. Community engagement has become an integral component of these efforts, as it plays an important role in maximizing the social impact of transdisciplinary research and creates new opportunities in education at all levels. In this session, we examine the wide spectrum of community engagement in geoscience: from the more established initiatives in sustainability outreach to the increasingly common approaches of knowledge co-creation such as citizen science. Our focus is on the innovation in building inclusive communities and sustainable partnerships between researchers, educators, community partners and participants. The presentations will also highlight and synthesize the latest trends in inclusive participatory research and engagement with underrepresented and underprivileged groups.
