We are  partnering with Evidence for Democracy to bring you our first workshop, and 101 event. Dr. Katie Gibbs, the executive director of Evidence for Democracy, will be leading a workshop on the basics of:

WHAT is science policy? | WHY is it important? | HOW to do it effectively?

Participants will then have the chance to practice their science advocacy skills and gain some valuable feedback from one of Canada’s leading science advocates.

Their issue-based campaigns focus on issues affecting science and public policy in Canada. Notable campaigns include the Science Pledge, the #SupportTheReport campaign to promote fundamental science, and a campaign to save federally funded climate science.
