Using Science Communication to effect positive change: exploring transitions, traditions and tensions  

The University of Aberdeen is delighted to be able to invite you to attend PCST 2025.  The conference theme will seek to explore transitions (change versus stability), traditions (the old, current and the new) and tensions (dispute versus consensus) that influence all of our work as science communicators.

In this context of our climate emergency, of global health imperatives, such as food and water security, and poverty alleviation PCST will come together in 2025 to discuss science communication can and should be used to positive effect in our  changing world.
