Lisa Erdle, SETAC Connects Sub-Committee Chair, and Trudy Watson-Leung, SETAC North America 40th Annual Meeting Co-Chair

SETAC is pleased to announce SETAC Connects, an event in celebration of partnerships between SETAC scientists and groups engaged in various forms of citizen science, science coordination and science communication. SETAC Connects will be held on the last day of the SETAC North America 40th Annual Meeting in Toronto and celebrates and promotes a range of topics, including amazing discoveries, invaluable partnerships, opportunities for funding, connecting people to data, inspiring projects connecting citizens to science, and more. Up to 25 different groups will have a booth and be available for conversations with attendees throughout the day on Thursday, 7 November, in the exhibit hall. A special SETAC Connects Poster Corner will take place from 4:20–5:00 p.m. to highlight collaborations and sharing lessons learned. In addition, there are several other citizen science and science communication sessions scheduled for the SETAC Toronto meeting, so plan to stay until the end of the day on Thursday! See the SETAC Toronto session listing for more details.

Interested in Highlighting Your Project or Group?

There are many opportunities for scientists to partner with groups, including environmental non-governmental organizations (ENGOs), citizen science groups, intergovernmental groups and others collaborating with scientists on environmental issues. By connecting distinct groups with a range of priorities, SETAC Connects can help leverage existing resources and research to creatively address new and challenging environmental issues.

Do you have a group or project you would like to see involved? Do you want to be a part of our event and share your experiences? Please email Lisa Erdle
