Science communication is an essential skill and plays a vital role in bridging the divide between research and society at large. By rendering complex ideas understandable and engaging, effective science communication empowers individuals to grasp how scientific advancements impact their everyday lives. Furthermore, conveying scientific information clearly and accurately is crucial when tackling global issues like climate change. 

As researchers and professionals in the field increasingly seek to share their science with the public, and with journalists looking for reliable facts about our changing weather and climate, RMetS strives to ensure that its Early Career members are properly prepared to communicate via different media.
