The ECSA conference 2020 will focus on junctures in science: between scientists and citizens; between East and West; between North and South; and between the different fields of science.
ECSA will co-host a workshop in Berlin next March, with the title ‘Creating a citizens’ information pack on ethical and legal issues around ICTs: what should be included?’. The purpose of this event is to collect ideas from citizens and citizen scientists about the major problems they face in this field, and what is needed to overcome these.
Many of the ECSA headquarters team will take part in the Global Climate Strike in Berlin this Friday (20 September) to show our support for this essential movement. The climate crisis is a major threat to human civilization For several months, in an initiative started by Greta Thunberg, young people around the world have been missing school each Friday (under the banner #FridaysForFuture) to demand real action to tackle global heating and demand their right to a future that isn’t defined by the climate crisis.
