The art of public speaking

From TedTalks to invitations to present our work at libraries or even churches, public speaking — and the art of speechwriting behind it  — are increasingly crucial skills for environmental journalists and communicators.  UF graduate student Jennifer Adler presents her talk, “Illusions: A Lens into Our Fragile Freshwater,” at TEDxJacksonville. Adler’s deeply personal story of her relationship with water, blended with science and otherworldly underwater photographs, all help make this a compelling talk that will be shared online long after the live event, which took place in November 2015.
