A PERSPECTIVE REVIEW on how to better reach and engage with EXCLUDED communities
Where are we today when it comes to engaging excluded communities, often referred to as “underserved”, “underprivileged” or “marginalized”?
This timely question is the topic of “Engaging the Excluded”, a perspective review mapping out the current state of inclusive Science Engagement – by highlighting recent debates in the literature and five exemplary case-studies. This publication commissioned by Falling Walls Engage was developed and written by Rokia Ballo, researcher in Science and Technology Studies (STS) at the University College London (UCL) in 2021.
To accompany the launch of the review, we have produced “Engaging the Excluded”, a short film and resource for practitioners presenting key learnings and featuring the five projects cited in the review (see below).
WEBINAR AT THE Berlin Science Week, 4 NOV 2021 | 11.00 – 12.30 (CET)
This session dived further into the discussion on key learnings and challenges around inclusion in Science Engagement as part of Berlin Science Week, drawing upon the discussions of an inaugural webinar held in August 2021. Both sessions, moderated by Rokia Ballo, provided a space for participants to exchange, compare experiences and engage with some of the contributors involved in the review.
