Why Communications Matter to Science
Mark Henderson, one of Britain’s leading science communicators, argues that science needs to have a more dominant place in society. He presents the shocking fact that out of the 650 MP’s in Parliament, only one comes from a science background. With little knowledge of the scientific method, many MP’s are blind to the fact that science can positively contribute to policy. In this RSA presentation, Henderson urges his fellow geeks to become more involved; lobbying in their communities and making an actual difference.
