The Voice of Young Science Standing up for Science media workshops are an opportunity for early-career researchers to discover how to get their voices heard in public debates about science. The last one was here in Charles Darwin House and I went along with my voice recorder to capture some of what was said.
I interviewed panellists to hear their tips on how to get your stories into the news, and how to prepare for interviews with journalists. The speakers included scientists, journalists and press officers, and they were all keen to work together to ensure science is reported accurately and reaches a wide audience. Listen to hear their views!
The next workshop will take place at the University of Glasgow on 16th November, and more are planned for 2013. Go to the Sense About Science website for more information.
If you are a Member or Fellow of the Society of Biology and want to talk about how best to let the world know about your research then I am always pleased to talk about it, so drop me an email. I’m also happy to receive submissions of guest blog posts from biologists discussing their research.
