Moving from Place to Purpose: Science Centres, Social Impact, and UN SDGs

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Panel Organized by: Marianne Mader, Canadian Association of Science Centres

The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) are expansive and can be difficult for people to personally relate to, both in terms of lived experience and how they as individuals can make a difference. Essential to moving from awareness to action is public accessibility to the science and inclusive dialogue. Science centres and museums play a critical role in this effort. The panel will address lessons learned from current SDG public engagement programs, reflection on how to improve interventions going forward, and ideas for a holistic informal science learning strategy and policies that could promote collaboration and partnerships.
