Public Understanding of Entomology SIG - 13 September 2017

13th September 2017





Public Understanding of Entomology  Special Interest Group Meeting

Venue: Curtis Auditorium, Herschel Building, Newcastle University

Convenors: Luke Tilley James Gilbert

The group focuses on how entomologists communicate with the public and how the public connects with entomology in return. The aim is to draw on a wide range of experiences from the classroom, the media and politics to improve the communication and perception of insect science. The group provides an opportunity to debate how key concepts in entomology can be tailored for different audiences to achieve the greatest impact.

The first meeting of the Public Understanding of Entomology SIG will be on Wednesday 13 September 1:30-5:30pm, University of Newcastle, during Ento '17. The meeting is free-of-charge but all delegates MUST register in advance, including those already attending Ento 17,  to ensure there are enough spaces and refreshments.
