Seagrass Seminar Series

    TCI’s Jennifer McHugh who is the Program Coordinator for Development of the Tropics was asked to present at the World Seagrass Association’s Seagrass Seminar Series in 2022. She said the invitation came as a surprise to her as Seagrass was never in her studies. Jennifer was invited to participate based upon her vast experience working with scientists to improve science communication; she has mentored and trained over eighty TEDx speakers.

    This seminar was titled ‘Effectively Promoting Seagrass Research.’ Jennifer joined a discussion panel hosted by World Sea Grass Association President, Associate Professor Jessie Jarvis, which included Dr. Ashley Scarlett, a marine conservation and science communication specialist and Dr. Abbi Scott, a seagrass scientist with Tropwater. 

    Jennifer’s talk was titled ‘Your presentation, its not about you,’ and focused on making presentations audience-centric.
    Seventy-five people from around world registered for the seminar held on the 27th October and the recording has been made available on the World Seagrass Conference and International Seagrass Biology Workshop, ISBW14 YouTube channel.
