As Observatory scientists address geohazard challenges for southeast Asia, the Community Engagement Office strives to share the work and expertise of our scientists. With established channels of communication, we reach a growing audience of interested and engaged users. Our outreach and education initiatives aim to connect with a broader audience, developing deeper relationships with both scientific and non-scientific communities worldwide as we build public awareness of geohazards research.
The Community Engagement Office aims to build the identity of the Observatory beyond the scientific community, reaching government and leadership, educators, partners, and the media. This is achieved by elevating our scientists’ research and expressing the importance of Earth science awareness through both local and international media, and through the Observatory’s social channels.
As part of its plan to develop a stronger footprint within Singapore to express the importance of Earth science, the Community Engagement Office is expanding learning programmes and opportunities to improve geohazard understanding for students.
The Community Engagement Office takes on projects varying in depth, scope, and focus, supporting the work of the Observatory’s scientists and deepening relationships with local and regional partners.
