The workshop aims to help bridge the gap between science communications and science journalism. It seeks to help people working in research, government and media to learn from each other, amid a global culture where ‘dumbing down’ is becoming the norm.
This will be a two-day training workshop, focusing on science communications and science journalism. The first day for science communications and the second day for science journalism, with focus on environmental journalism. The programme will be built on sharing good practice in science reporting: from writing to pitching to presenting to monitoring. This means turning theory into practice in interactive sessions, tailoring content for different groups, and then swapping roles. There will be plenary sessions for journalists, scientists and communication specialists, with the aim of gathering different perspectives from key actors – to clarify the challenges and identify potential synergies for science reporting.
