Get Involved: Science Network Action Opportunities

As a member of the UCS Science Network, you gain access to a variety of action opportunities to inform the public and influence policy makers and events where you can connect with and learn from colleagues who have similar interests. Check out the following opportunities:

Participate in our "Science, Democracy, and a Healthy Food Policy" Forum May 6.

Join us for an evening that will bring together experts, advocates, and engaged citizens to explore how science can help advance healthier food environments for communities throughout the nation. Join in person in Minneapolis, or via live webcast. RSVP Today for the forum. And share your experiences and ideas about healthy food policy by submitting a comment.

Webinar May 2, 3:30 p.m. EST: "Uncertainty, Politics, and Technology"

RSVP for an interactive webinar with Dan Sarewitz, co-director of the Consortium for Science, Policy & Outcomes and professor of science and society, Arizona State University. Dr. Sarewitz will address the idea that uncertainty is significantly a phenomenon of political disagreement; and that dealing with uncertainty is often best pursued through technological (or political) pathways, rather than scientific ones. Register online for this Google+ Hangout.

Join the Citizen Science Project

You can help document how the world's major carbon producers are contributing to the growing consequences of climate change. To participate, all you need to do is contribute your computer's idle processing time to help run the climate models that provide the essential data for this research. Join citizen scientists around the world who are helping to complete the vast computations needed for this groundbreaking research on climate change.

An Open Letter on Climate Change from California Climate Scientists and Economists

(For scientists, researchers, or economists with a PhD who live or work in California and whose peer-reviewed research focuses on climate change or its solutions.) California has started on the path to limiting the worst impacts of climate change. Yet the state has no enforceable plan to get us the rest of the way there. Join the open statement from California climate scientists and economists who are calling on Governor Jerry Brown and legislators to set enforceable emissions caps for 2030 and beyond.

Shed Light on Corporate Political Spending

The public deserves to know who is influencing policies that affect our health and safety. The proposed Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) rule would require publicly traded companies to disclose more about their political spending, including their support for trade and business associations. Urge the SEC to prioritize passage of this disclosure rule.
