  • Event overview

    A one day conference exploring how science communicators engage with complex and often sensitive public domain issues using social media.

    media140 Frontiers Brisbane will be the first event of its kind to be hosted in the Brisbane Powerhouse to bring together an international gathering of speakers from the US, Europe and Australia.

    This one-day conference will explore the benefits of social technologies on effective science and risk communication, looking at the challenges of engaging the public on issues such as climate change, health, nanotechnology, cloning and other sensitive public interest themes. Through keynotes, case studies and workshops, we will create a participatory experience for science communicators to really understand what others are doing in this domain and help to inform discussion and debate about the future direction and trends.

    We have a great line up of speakers from the US, Europe, New Zealand and Australia discussing and sharing their insights, experiences and strategies.

    Just a few of the faces you will be seeing at media140 Brisbane 2011.
