Register to attend the PCST Suzhou Symposium in China (17-19 October 2024)

25 January 2024

The world is a global community that shares a common destiny for humanity. However, growing polarisation and antagonism in today’s world pose significant challenges to science communication. To address challenges such as artificial intelligence, misinformation, technological controversies, environment and health, and cultural variation, we invite you to exchange thoughts and effective practices on local or international science communication. We aim to explore and expand communication methods, broaden perspectives, and strengthen our sense of responsibility. In this way, we expect to bridge differences, alleviate confrontation, and rebuild spaces and platforms for fruitful dialogue among all parties involved in science communication.

Suzhou, a city mingling innovation and classics, is ready for the refreshing and sparkling conversation to renew our science communication community from 17 to 19 October 2024. This time is also the most beautiful season in Suzhou Gardens.
