ACS Advocacy Workshops

ACS Climate Change Advocacy Workshop

The purpose of this free, online, and interactive workshop is for participants to learn how to effectively advocate for climate change action on the federal level. The workshop includes modules covering an overview of climate change science, some of its impacts on society and the environment, as well as mitigation, adaptation, and resiliency strategies. It also explores how the U.S. government is involved with climate change action. Importantly, participants will learn about different ways to communicate about climate change with various audiences, from those who are champions of climate change action to those who are less receptive to climate change, while always moving toward a shared common goal. This program aligns with ACS' ongoing engagement with policymakers on Capitol Hill in support of science, engineering, innovation, and chemical stewardship.

Module topics include:

  • The science of climate change
  • Climate change and society
  • Climate change and the U.S. government
  • Climate change communications
  • Conclusions and Advocacy Activities
