Erin Greeson, the director of communications, came on board excited to contribute to The Planetary Society’s commitment to education, best science, diversity, and empowerment. She agrees that space science and exploration are essential to understanding how precious Earth is. Like Bill Nye, Erin’s favorite planet is Earth. She’s worked in renewable energy, sustainable industries, and environmental advocacy and is an advocate for sustainable transit, with particular passion for bikes. She believes these core values drive solutions to today’s greatest challenges. Erin holds a B.A. from Swarthmore College and has volunteered professional services through numerous nonprofit boards and advisory committees.
At the office, you'd find Erin working with her talented staff on inspired, collective storytelling. She helps devise and direct campaigns that reach diverse media channels and collaborates with fellow directors to advance The Society’s mission, when she’s not sneaking out on the boss’ office bike for midday ride. Our standout media asset, Erin is 6’2” and always easy to spot at press conferences, special events, and blocking your view at that concert you paid $120 to see.
Erin manages media relations for The Planetary Society. Media representatives may direct inquiries and interview requests to [email protected]. Resources to support ongoing reporting needs are available in The Planetary Society Press Room.
The Planetary Society’s 2017 journey to Australia expanded our perspective, advocacy and global community. It was rich with reminders close to Carl Sagan’s heart: We are all connected through time, humankind, and our origins in the stars.
Planetary Society CEO Bill Nye appeared on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.” In a nod to Sagan (Bill’s Astronomy professor at Cornell University), Bill unveiled his own shiny version of a crude model.
