Communicating scientific findings to the public has never been more important and challenging than in the present era of global climate change unfolding against the backdrop of rapidly accelerating human population growth. Engaging the public in factually based dialogs about environmental change and its impacts on the ecosystems on which we depend is increasingly challenging. The compelling existential nature of the discussion has attracted people of many different professions and cultures who speak a wide variety of mutually unintelligible jargons and many different national languages. As members of the international marine scientific community served by PICES, we are mindful that the first language of most participants is not English and that those from outside our area of specialization do not necessarily share our professional lexicon.

FUTURE is remarkable as a marine scientific program that explicitly addresses the area of public education and outreach within the broader scientific context of identifying major sources of uncertainty and impediments to improving the skill of assessments and forecasts, suggesting research areas for priority development, and providing coordination of potential PICES products through the FUTURE Advisory Panel on Status, Outlooks, Forecasts, and Engagement (SOFE).

Building on expertise and information in workshop (W2) that precedes the session, this session welcomes papers that address challenges presented by uncertainty in the uptake of forecasts by decision makers within the context of communication challenges presented by the diversity of disciplines and languages necessary to address global climate change. We encourage contributions or case study reports that illustrate effective ways of communicating outlooks/forecasts of climate change impacts to specific audiences/communities. The context of communication challenges presented by the diversity of disciplines and languages necessary to address global climate change established during the session will form the basis for setting priorities in FUTURE products.
