Sharing LTER research progress and initiatives beyond the ecological community is critical. It’s important to connect with the Next Gen of potential ecologists. Specifically, those aged 14-20 y.o., as well as the community at large, who spend more getting their information from social media platforms! So, how best to reach them?
One answer is to use the social media platforms people are already accessing. Co-opting those platforms, connecting them, cross-post photos, videos, and compelling information, and becoming “Eco-Influencers”.
This workshop will bring experts on the following topics – to learn how to:
Utilize a variety of social media platforms – connecting them to form an easy platform of information
Better utilize imagery, both video and photographs, in information delivery
Clearly develop a compelling post attract audiences
Present content on a regular basis and learn how often content needs to be generated to satisfy our audience
