Unlocking Science: Prioritising Institutional Responses to Distrust in Science

International Science Council | Tawana Kupe, Vlada Tusco, Courtney Radsch, Sacha Altay, Marta Entradas, Nick Ishmael-Perkins

What can scientists and the institutions they work for do to respond to the distrust and mis-information in science around the world? Our panel looks at what has worked and why science communication is in need of a revolution.

This session explores the latest evidence on how the public builds its understanding of science. We explore where the blocks are structurally and psychologically to a more constructive engagement between scientific consensus and what is often referred to as, the general public. The panel will feature university heads, journalism activists, cognitive scientists, and a member of the production team for the forthcoming BBC hub on science for sustainability; #Unlockingscience launches on November 9th on BBC.com.

The session is hosted by the International Science Council to mark the World Science Day for Peace and Development.
