Shaping Science Policy

Science has never been more important for informing sound policy and ensuring progress for all citizens. AAAS leverages scientific evidence to engage policymakers and society at large. Through various programs, AAAS informs policymakers on current issues related to science and technology.

AAAS articulates positions on critical science-related issues in public statements and in news media commentaries and interviews. AAAS holds workshops, seminars, and events for scientists, policymakers, and the public to engage and communicate. AAAS programs help the public better understand science and its role in evidence-based policy-making. AAAS also works with global partners to strengthen advocacy for evidence beyond national borders.
