This poster session presents novel approaches and new ideas for students and young people to appreciate the importance of science in their daily life. Teachers and educators need their knowledge base regularly updated with tools that will help their students critically evaluate scientific information transmitted via the media. The higher education system needs strategies to attract future scientists from across the globe to study the Earth’s atmosphere, geosphere, biosphere, cryosphere and hydrosphere, and scientists from all disciplines need guidance on how best to interact with schools so their contributions can be valued.
