Community science is when scientists and members of local communities work together to use science to advance one or more community priorities. It’s a way of doing science that prioritizes community impact over publishable results. Successful community science requires skills and approaches that are not often emphasized or rewarded in traditional science research or education. This session will introduce the AGU Thriving Earth Exchange (TEX) and the community science projects we support to address local climate change, natural hazards and natural resources challenges. It will feature insights and lessons learned from successful projects that attendees could use to advance community science in their own work.
