Communicating with Impact

September 30, 2017

We're working with Dr Angela Dean from University of Queensland's Centre of Excellence for Environmental Decisions on a science communication project for Moreton Bay / Quandamooka Reef Ambassadors. Our Brisbane Reef Ambassadors enjoyed an awesome science communications workshop to fine-tune communication skills for a wide array of audiences and think about ways to start enacting practical behaviour changes in their network of family, friends and colleagues. 

One of our participants labelled it "a refreshing and wildly useful new slant on how to share our critical message with our stunning part of the world!"

The workshop wrapped up with some very powerful brainstorming of actions we can take to help promote science, environmental and sustainability messages to the community... we're working on rolling these out, so stay tuned! 

As part of ReefBlitz we also had the chance to get out and about in Moreton Bay and put some messages into practice, working with Moreton Bay Environmental Education Centre and CoralWatch to take a tour of Brisbane's unique city corals using towed underwater videos and hosting a crash course in some citizen science methodologies. 

This project is proudly supported by Advance Queensland.
