This webinar series provides ocean acidification communication tools to formal & informal educators, and stakeholders across the country. One of its primary goals, is to promote a more integrated and effective ocean acidification education community by sharing ocean acidification education and communication activities virtually. With awareness of and access to these resources, the ocean acidification education and communication community will be able to utilize and continue to create cutting edge communication tools that incorporate current scientific and communication research.
This series is jointly sponsored by the NOAA National Marine Sanctuaries and Ocean Acidification Program.

Good communicators speak the way they want to speak. Great communicators speak the way people listen. The interesting thing is that people listen in a formulaic way.
This SOARCE webinar will allow you to discover the communication formula that Dr. Tullio Rossi, author of several award-winning animation videos, uses to communicate climate and ocean acidification science. You will learn about key principles of storytelling and communication and how to implement these in your future work. Not interested in animation video? This is still relevant to you because the ideas that are going to be discussed are applicable to any type of media.
About the Speaker:
"Since I finished high school I have dedicated my life to my greatest passion: the ocean. I undertook studies in marine biology, which brought me from Italy to the USA and then in Australia, where I recently completed a PhD in ocean acidification science. I always wanted to positively impact the world through science, however, during my PhD I realized that research alone is not enough. Science needs effective communication in order to make a difference. With this new awareness, I invested time and energy into becoming a proficient science communicator. This took many forms and radically shifted my career aspirations from academia to science communication.
Parallel to my education, I worked as a graphic designer for more than 10 years. Now that my education in science is complete, I feel I am connecting the dots between my scientific and design backgrounds. The two are coming together beautifully!
Thanks to this mixed background I can offer unique services which combine a solid understanding of science, the familiarity with the use of visual media and the principles of story telling. I am currently working as a freelance science communicator. I utilize my mixed skillset to help scientists and institutions communicate their complex ideas in a simple but effective way. The main services that I offer are animation video, scientific illustration and infographic design. I also run science communication workshops targeted to students and researchers.
You can watch some of my award-winning videos on my educational YouTube channel The Coral Garden.
I consider myself a citizen of the world but I am currently based in Adelaide (Australia). In my spare time I love traveling to exotic places, exploring the underwater world, dancing latin rhythms and talking to people about the ocean!"
