Many problems facing society are complex—global climate change; managing natural resources such as water; obesity and other public health issues—and cannot be fixed by good scientific research alone. Science communication practitioners are increasingly looking to other disciplines to inform and improve their practice.
Each speaker on this panel has a different disciplinary background, and will speak about some of the BIG issues in science communication:
- Has the science question been framed in a way that is relevant to how the problem is perceived by the stakeholders?
- We think we know who the ‘target audience’ is, but do we really?
- What kind of relationships and collaborations are necessary for the science to really inform decision making?
Their insights might support what you are already doing, or offer ideas to incorporate into your science communication practices.
