WG4 Media

The work of this group focuses on finding the best practices to link the scientific and educational communities with journalists, publishers and the media in general to produce powerful, compelling and effective messages that increase the understanding of evolution and of scientific literacy in general.

Main tasks of Working Group 4:

  • Collect data on the current state of science-journalism and science-media relationships in different countries and search for existing initiatives in this area.
  • Promote links between scientists and journalists/publishers in communicating evolutionary biology by means of a workshop for both groups to find potential matches between scientists and journalists, and facilitate knowledge exchange between them
  • Organize a workshop that will design a set of best practices for public media and publishers to demystify evolutionary biology and to present it as a modern, valuable and contributory field.
