This blog is run by the School of Science in Society* at Te Herenga Waka—Victoria University of Wellington.
We are interested in the relationship between science, scientists, society, the history of science, and the communication of scientific ideas and issues to different audiences and through a range of media.
We look at the role of science and scientists in our present and in our past, how people and governments use science to make decisions about issues like climate change and vaccination, increasing our understanding of how the wider community engages with science, and how and why scientific ideas and concepts are communicated.
We will also be including guest contributions from colleagues, friends, and students..
If you’d like to know more about our ethos, or are attending a Science in Society event, you might like to read our Ko wai mātou post and take a look at our Code of Conduct.
*We are the School of Science in Society as of 2023. Before that we were the Centre for Science in Society.
