About the course

The world has changed dramatically since the arrival of SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus in late 2019. Never before has it been so crucial to have skilled science communicators presenting technical information accurately and engagingly, while also organising and managing the flows of communication within and across the complex new crises we face on this planet. While there are fears of misinformation to be addressed, it is also crucial to engage society to participate in scientific research, and to make science more accessible and inclusive. Traditional political and community forums, online platforms, vlogs, broadcast news, social media, conferences, seminars, policy briefings and even science fiction are just some of the ways we can address both the scientific and the social issues associated with climate change, pandemics, future and emerging technologies, and the science of the world around us.
