New Zealand retreat to build on PCST ideas

6 December 2017

Next April, after the PCST conference in Dunedin, we’re planning a 4-day retreat near Wellington, New Zealand.  It’s open to all interested in in the public engagement about science, STS and associated fields.

The Public Communication of Science and Technology Conference (PCST 2018) is bringing scholars and practitioners of science communication and public engagement to New Zealand next April, from all around the world.

Our retreat will take place from the evening of Monday, April 9th, until lunch on Thursday, April 12th, at the beautiful Waihoanga Centre, about an hour north of Wellington. While we hope that participants will join for the whole time, come part-time if that’s all you can manage.

The cost of the retreat will be approximately NZ$380 per person, which will include all meals and accommodation. We require 15 confirmed participants to go ahead, and will cap numbers at 30.

If you’re interested in joining this event, please register your interest (even if you can’t make a full commitment at this stage).

Please register your interest no later than December 15th (ideally before). We will confirm if we have sufficient numbers to proceed by December 18th so that you can book your travel with confidence.
