In 2018, Kate Cranney travelled around the world, interviewing science communicators from 23 organisations. She spent time with the Smithsonian Institute, the Monterey Bay Aquarium and the David Suzuki Foundation, to name a few.
She asked each group: How do you communicate your work in creative and innovate ways? What are the bright spots in your organisation—what communications campaigns were successful and why? And how do you collaborate with the public, especially with artists and children?
This presentation provides a tasty smörgåsbord (Kate visited Sweden!) of some of the most creative science communication happening around the world.
