Making your research accessible

Film still a useful tool: “Decoding Science, Reducing Risk”

By 16/07/2012

In this new film some of the most renowned scientists and humanitarian policy makers explore how they can mitigate future humanitarian threats by making science more accessible and widely understood. The film is produced by GO-science and the Humanitarian Future Program, and provides a convincing argument for ensuring research is communicated effectively. It also provides a really good example of how film can be used to get these types of key messages across.

“The real aim of the film is to bring together people who have information and the people who want to use that information.” Says Emma Visman HFP’s futures manager, Kings College London.
