The ISC Action Plan project “The Public Value of Science – Enabling Scientific Engagement” is designed to support the scientific community in responding to the challenges facing science engagement, and those perceptions of science which undermine evidence-based policy, international collaboration and, ultimately, science for sustainability. The programme seeks to respond to the threats scientists face from ‘fringe’ groups, scientific nationalism, conspiracy theorists and populism and declining trust in science.
In the frame of this project a three-part webinar series will take place in March 2023. The series will be of particular interest to those involved in publishing journals, working with traditional news media, or those who create knowledge platforms.
