This workshop targets three main groups – researchers, communications staff, and journalists – from across Panama. The aim is to help people working in research, government and media to learn from each other, amid a global culture where ‘dumbing down’ is becoming the norm.
The programme is built around sharing good practice in science reporting: from writing to pitching to presenting to monitoring. This means turning theory into practice via interactive sessions, tailoring content for different groups, and then swapping roles. The overall aim is to shape a new communications ecosystem by giving a ‘full spectrum’ overview of the political and media landscape.
Venue: Ciudad del Saber, Panama City
Date: 12-16 December 2016
