ASPAC Master Class for Emerging Leaders [AMEL] (The Mind Museum, Philippines - April 18-20, 2023)
Climate change is arguably our planet’s greatest challenge, bringing together science, technology, society, politics and almost everything in-between – effective communication, engagement and education is critical.
As science centres, we have a role – and obligation – to play! This first of 2 ASPAC Masterclass for Emerging Leaders (AMEL) 2023, will bring together participants from across ASPAC to explore content for science shows, hands-on activities and tinkering focussed on climate change and energy production. Prof. Graham Walker of Australian National University will be our masterclass facilitator.

Together we can take local action for Asia-Pacific wide impact on one of Earth and humanity’s biggest challenges!

ASPAC will shoulder the Masterclass fees for ALL 25 participants so registration is FREE for ASPAC Planet members (1 per institution but depending on the numbers we get, by mid-March, we can open it for more.) Meals during the masterclass will also be free.

Airfare, transfers and accommodations would have to be shouldered by your institution. We recommend booking at SEDA Fort Bonifacio Global City or F1 Hotel (both within 10-minute walking distance from The Mind Museum).

As a participant you will:
  • Receive written resources and experience in-person ideas for demos, activities and more developed at the Australian National University, including a detailed Teacher Workshop booklet you can adapt to your context – and share innovative approaches you’re already using
  • Learn and apply fundamentals that underpin effective climate communication, such as making it relevant and balancing problems with solutions to inspire and empower
  • Codevelop and refine content to suit the different cultures, audiences, geographies, curriculums, etc. you work with
  • Create prototype content and an action plan for sharing it with other staff and delivery to the public back at your centre
  • Share your successes, challenges and learn from each other as part a community of practice going forward
  • Take part in research so we can understand what works, what doesn’t, and why – and measure the impact we make as team ASPAC!

Deadline has been extended until April 3, 2023.
