Science provides vital information for society, yet it is hard to access for audiences outside of academia. There has long been a communication gap between research and wider society, as well as the arts. Science communication (scicomm) and SciArt fill this gap, while helping us all understand our planet and human society while facing the climate crisis and global health issues.
That's why at NatureVolve our community of science communicators, researchers and artists, unite to communicate valuable ideas about nature and our place on the planet to the world. Members contribute to NatureVolve digital magazine by sharing their personal stories, inspirations and insights about their creative scicomm projects. Through the creativity of the arts, we make science open, understandable and engaging with diverse worldwide audiences.
Membership lasts 3 months, beginning with preparations for the article, receiving editorial guidelines, announcements on social media (>11K followers), publication in the magazine (>3K subscribers), a blog article and profile with links on NatureVolve's site.
