COMPASS most often works with environmental scientists interested in becoming more engaged in the public discourse. But we have helped scientists in a variety of disciplines, communicating with many audiences and working toward different types of goals, to distill and frame their messages with the Message Box.
These four scientists provide a glimpse of the diversity of thought and approach. Their Message Boxes may help you think through your own Message Box and see new ways of framing and sharing your work. Note how each Message Box identifies its audience up front, and provides a framework for sorting and distilling complex issues down to their essence, answering some of the questions outlined in the Message Box sections.
