Project Description

Help us increase our outreach to the Argentine public about important topics! You will:
- Develop a virtual outreach plan including creating a schedule of virtual presentations related to climate change / environment (September, October, November, December) and community service (February, March, April, May). Find an appropriate online platform (such as Google Hangout) and presentation style to engage young audiences.
- Identify experts: Find U.S. experts at your university, city or elsewhere to serve as speakers in Spanish about these topics, and coordinate their participation.
- Act as a virtual coordinator between the U.S. expert, the Embassy and (as needed) Argentine audiences.
- During the events, moderate, filter questions from the audience, and maintain the flow of the presentation. Occasionally, you may also introduce the speakers.
- Draft social media posts to spread the word about the virtual presentations for use on the Embassy's Facebook and twitter accounts.
