The National Network for Ocean and Climate Change Interpretation (NNOCCI) is building the capacity of aquariums, zoos, science centers, and nature centers to increase public understanding of climate change and its impacts. Educators and scientists from across the country are currently participating in training series that use special techniques to address science literacy and promote public dialogue. At the same time, these training series are developing a community of practice that will aim to sustain a resilient national infrastructure for educators and scientists. Working with New England Aquarium, the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, and FrameWorks Institute, NewKnowledge collaborates with Pennsylvania State University to serve as external evaluators. The project is supported in part by the National Science Foundation.
