SciBeh Virtual Workshop 2021: Science Communication as Collective Intelligence
18–19 November 2021
We need science communication that moves beyond the traditional “lone wolf” model (where individual scientists engage in public outreach) towards a collective intelligence model.
Join us to explore what collective intelligence can offer, discuss the challenges ahead, and set out a vision for the future of science communication.
Why collective intelligence?
- In a crisis, the landscape of science communication and its socio-political context is changing dynamically.
- Social media disinformation and anti-science campaigns have become part of the wider discourse, damaging trust in scientific communication.
- Individual scientists will struggle to communicate effectively amidst these forces.
- We need to adapt—by harnessing collective intelligence to communicate scientific outputs to both policy-makers and the public.
