May 5, 2011 to May 6, 2011
This symposium presents the research findings of the Australian Research Council international Linkage project, Hot Science, Global Citizens: the agency of the museum sector in climate change interventions along with other leading research to develop new knowledge about what constitutes effective action around climate change, the critical roles that institutions can play, visions for the future of museums and science centres, and innovative programming ideas.
Participants can expect to gain new input from humanities and social sciences on how to communicate climate change and generate positive actions, and how to handle controversies and uncertainties around climate change.
