Join us in the beautiful setting of the American Southwest for a three-day symposium on the joys and challenges of communicating our understanding of the universe and science in general--whether in the classroom, in a museum or nature center, to general and specific audiences, through books and magazines, on the web, via festivals and fairs, on radio and television, or through the social media.  Preceding the symposium will be a two-day workshop:  In the Footsteps of Galileo, a national workshop of educators in grades 3-12 and in informal settings.

Plan to be part of this seminal gathering on how basic principles of behavior change can help in the fight to preserve our environment. As world-famous climatologist Lonnie Thompson noted in his paper in The Behavior Analyst, there is currently no engineering fix for climate change. For now, the only thing we can do is change human behavior.

Feeding the estimated 9-10 billion people who will inhabit the earth by 2050 is a complex global challenge.
