Anxious Reactions: How can chemical scientists engage the public with the climate crisis?

26 May 2023 11:00-14:00, London, United Kingdom

This event is for RSC Members only Book now

This hybrid workshop will explore the roles and responsibilities of chemical scientists in communicating climate change with different groups. We will consider how emotions like anxiety, frustration, hope, and guilt complicate this task – both for scientists and the public – and how we might navigate them. Participants will work together to develop actionable engagement plans for a range of experts involved in climate-related research and communication.
