IIn the past, there has been a tendency to view scientific research (from fundamental to applied), education (undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral), and engagement (outreach including industrial and philanthropic interactions, K-12 and informal education, and policy / public affairs) as separate activities, practiced one-at-a-time and lodged in different organizational and administrative units. Yet as citizen-scientists, we know these activities are closely interwoven; we want our lives to be less fragmented, and our contributions to making the world a better place maximized.
We believe there is now an excellent opportunity to place ICAM in a position of global leadership in science, education, and engagement by:
through workshops on initiatives in science education and unifying SEE concepts, and by supporting regional summits on SEE initiatives.
