Science Communication and Engagement with Religious Publics Workshop

Washington State Convention Center, 705 Pike Street, Seattle, WA


This session will occur at the AAAS Annual Meeting on Sunday, February 16, 2020 from 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM PT. To attend, please register at the AAAS Meetings website.


AAAS facilitators will lead participants through an overview of how considerations of faith and spirituality can be important in science communication and engagement, and present some strategies and best practices for constructive, inclusive dialogue about science and society. The workshop will include moderated discussions and a small-group exercise to respond to a challenging question or scenario with peers. While the focus of the workshop is on dialogue with religious publics, the content is relevant and applicable to effective science education and communication with a broad range of audiences.
