Are you a geoscientist working with social scientists? Or a social scientist working on any aspect of geoscience? Then we want to hear from you! Today, there is a growing awareness that addressing the global environmental challenges we face requires different disciplines and scientific communities to work together. From investigating public perception and understanding of geoscience, to researching community involvement and participation in geoscience activities, we invite contributions from researchers working at the nexus of geoscience and social science. Areas of investigation can include environmental psychology, social science, media studies, policy, geoscience communication or other relevant areas. This session is an opportunity for researchers to learn from each other and share skills connected to this emerging field of research.
