Outreach and education

PAGES fosters outreach and capacity building through:

> Regional workshops and educational meetings

> Meeting support for developing-country and early-career scientists

> PAGES website and products and publications (e.g. PAGES Magazine, YouTube Channel, e-news)

> Supporting guest scientists


The list below contains links to web resources for education and outreach in the area of past global changes. We welcome updates and any other links you think are important, email our Communications Officer.
