Have you ever wondered how past science debates might have played out ‘if only…’ the right messages had hit home, the right people were engaged, and the right responses had been given at the right time? What could have been achieved if the first GM crops had consumer benefit, people knew what ‘nanotechnology’ meant, that report hadn’t been leaked, or people other than activists had been engaged?
Join our panelists – futurist Kristin Alford, communicator Craig Cormick, and researcher Will Grant – as they try to design the scientific debates of the future, using insight from the past and present. Help our ‘judges’ (TBC: it could be you!) to push the panellists’ scenarios to the limit. Make your vote count for the Science Policy with the ASC2014 ‘X-factor’.
