Registration open for Transformative Dialogue Trainings (NEW DATES)

12 October 2023
The Amsterdam Sustainability Institute and Athena Institute organise trainings for transformative dialogue. All VU researchers are invited to join.

Join us at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam for a series of transformative Dialogue Training sessions, designed for everyone who wants to know how to create public conversations about science that matter. 

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. 

Become part of the transformative dialogue training program, consisting of four dialogue workshops in the period October – November 2023.
