Local Science Engagement Network

The Local Science Engagement Network (LSEN) is a dynamic effort to energize and channel the commitment of the science community by building an engagement platform that connects scientific experts to conversations about energy, sustainability, and climate change and local solutions that benefit people and communities.  

This is a new initiative – and a new direction – for AAAS. It embodies a call to action from our growing membership that science societies provide platforms and pathways that support scientists who want to engage in the deliberative process around science-relevant policies and programs. 


The LSEN will empower scientists to speak on behalf of science-based solutions with local policymakers and stakeholders. Together, we will elevate the role of science – and scientists – as leaders who can provide valuable and actionable data and analysis necessary for sound decision-making. Thank you for supporting this important work.
