Understanding climate
for the benefit of society

Outreach and Communication 

Get your science out to society.


The Bjerknes Centre has prioritized outreach from the very start, and many of our scientists participate eagerly. 

Do you have an idea for something we can help out with? Use some of these as examples or inspiration, and contact Gudrun, Ellen and Andreas in the communications team.


On a regular basis we have questions from schools for a talk on the broad topic of climate science. If you are interested in contributing here, please contact the communications team. 


For an online handbook on outreach and communication, we recommend the Communication handbook for IPCC authors by the UK based Climate Outreach. Despite its name, very valuable for all scientists!


Our climate podcast

As we are located in Norway, the Norwegian public is the main audience for our outreach, but we also have English platforms, for example our own podcast. Among the topics in 2020 were the ice melt in Antarctica, heatwaves, the jet stream, storm tracks and a citizen snow science project.
