On the 6th & 7th June at the UNSW Scientia Conference Centre – Inspiring Australia, TechNyou, UNSW Science and ScienceRewired brought together over 250 of nation’s leading science communicators, innovators, science journalists, decision makers and educators. he Summit was as an opportunity for participants to individually and collectively compare, shape and influence their science communication direction and activities.

The Summit took a fresh look at five contemporary themes; crowd sourcing the key challenges and opportunities for science communicators and policymakers across Australia. Through a series of hands-on workshops, participants will address individual and collective barriers across these themes:

• It’s a two way street: engaging ALL Australians in the sciences
• Participative science: encouraging the best in citizen science
• Beyond tweets and blogs: leveraging the changing media landscape
• Diminishing degrees of separation: developing collaborative approaches across sectors
• Data at work: using the evidence base to guide future action
