Dialogue between science and society is more important yet more challenging than ever. The urgent societal issues we are facing today, such as global warming, poverty, and migration, require science to open up to societal perspectives. While the need for science-society collaboration and communication is growing, polarization and contestation of scientific knowledge in society seems to be more pressing every day. It is time to rethink the science-society relationship and foster dialogue.
Dive deep into the essence of public conversations about science. Improve your understanding of the interplay between science and society shaping public communication. Learn about tools, strategies, and insights to develop an open dialogue attitude and participate in meaningful conversations about science in society.
If you are a VU employee, become part of the transformative dialogue training program, consisting of four dialogue workshops in the period October – November 2023. Registration is free.
