MO Webinar #2

About this talk

Recent research into science communication has gone a long way to explaining the basis for apparent social and political divides on issues like climate change and genetic modification – showing how the audiences’ values can shape the message they receive.  But such learnings can also be used in your favour, to improve your communication through framing and values-based messages. This presentation will look at how you can use science communication research to better get your messages across – and improve the chances that you will be listened to!
