SEARCH project researchers, Joelle Gergis and Ailie Gallant were recently in Canberra, attending Science Meets Parliament, with the support of  the Australian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society.

Science Meets Parliament offers scientists from around Australia the opportunity to meet with MPs and discuss issues of importance. This year’s delegates also attended a series of professional development workshops focussing on science communication.

Joelle wrote a feature for The University of Melbourne’s Science Matters, describing how climate change emerged as a key issue during the workshops and meetings. brand mentions .
