Event Description

This is a closed event, open to Princeton University students, researchers, faculty and staff by RSVP. Please RSVP here

Join us for a workshop led by communicator and strategist Andy Goodman, internationally recognized for his speeches and workshops on storytelling. Andy will help participants identify best practices for sharing science/policy research with a general audience, making information accessible, engaging, and compelling.

This workshop will bring together researchers and communications professionals from the Woodrow Wilson School and broader Princeton University community. Participants will use Andy's tips and best practices to draft a story of their own about their research or an energy/environmental topic of interest to them.

This workshop is organized by the Center for Policy Research on Energy and the Environment (C-PREE) at the Woodrow Wilson School.

Date: Tuesday, February 25th
Time: 1:30-4:30 pm
