Diversity and community.
Wellington, 30th November 2018
2018’s SCANZ conference was on the theme: Diversity and Community
We wanted to see and hear about the diversity of science communication activities and science communication research being carried out in NZ; about the diversity of scientists and communicators engaging the community in NZ; and about the role of diverse communities in communicating science.
SCANZ 2018 was to share our knowledge and experience about this, and importantly, to build a better sense of community and a more diverse community. With this in mind, this year, we had a one-day, networking and community building focused conference. We aimed for more discussion and less formal talks.
