Science for Society
The Science for Society working group set out four target working points for the next few years. These are: engagement with schools, sharing opinions from AYA to a broader, non-academic audience, encouraging public debate, and providing public scientific displays about pressing societal issues such as climate change. We are especially interested in reaching audience of socio-economic backgrounds that would be less likely to come into contact with scientific research. At the moment the working group is looking into existing initiatives that target schools, while also engaging with the idea of sharing views from AYA members via opinion pieces.
