Participatory Communication of Science

Project description

The science of communicating science

Participatory science and engaging activities are key to ensuring science communication increases public engagement in science. This can be achieved through collaborations between scientists and the non-scientist public. However, concerns about public science literacy are on the rise. The EU-funded ParCos project will work to create participatory science stories that link to source material that the public can interpret for themselves. The project will explore ways to ensure diversity and inclusion in science participation and communication. It will also discuss the creation of engaging stories for the public that communicate and include the public in science activities and interpreting the outcomes. By disseminating stories alongside evidence shows, the audience will be invited to tell their own stories using ParCos tools.
