Event Description

Full Description:
In a world of alternative facts, it can seem like the divide between science, policy and practice is becoming a gaping chasm. Scientists are being increasingly required to demonstrate the ‘impact’ of their research. But in a world where facts and evidence are contested, what is the best approach to achieve impact? Is evidence-based policy desirable or achievable? How can scientists effectively influence complex policy processes, navigating through the politics, values, and vested interests? And how can researchers work with communities or NGOs to influence the political process?

This year’s NESS forum will bring together diverse speakers across the spectrum of policy, practice and academia to explore these issues, and provide insights for researchers working to achieve real-world impact through their research. The half-day forum will be of interest to researchers and practitioners from a range of disciplines who are interested in traversing the social dimensions of environmental issues.

Morning tea and a light networking lunch will be provided to all attendees.
