‘Debunking Fake News and Confidently Dealing with Scientific Uncertainty’
THE WORKSHOP IS FULLY BOOKED
This one-hour workshop for young researchers (students and postdocs) is based on the sad truth that fake news and SCAM-attacks (Scientific Certainty Argumentation Method) are established means of undermining the reception of scientific results that should lead to political change. Climate research is not the only field where this is happening but many of the insights on the topic were gained here.
The workshop first gives hints for interactions with journalists to portray uncertainty as a strength rather than a weakness of scientific research. The second topic is the debunking of fake news. The workshop presents a standard method that is preferable to ‘naïve’ debunking and offers a short online exercise in how to use that standard method.
The workshop is held by Christopher Schrader, science journalist with 30 years of experience and author of the German language handbook on climate communication ‘Über Klima sprechen’, published by klimafakten.de and Oekom. Schrader lives in Hamburg, Germany and will attend online.
Please let us know with your registration if you would like to attend this workshop. The number of participants is limited.
First come, first served: The places will be allocated to young researchers (students and postdocs) according to the date of registration and payment.
