DISCOVER THE INTERNATIONAL HUB NETWORK AND HOW TO GET INVOLVED

The international Hub network is a global community of Science Engagement practitioners and organisations bringing science closer to society— active in 9 countries. In 2022, we have launched new Engage Hubs in Mexico, Japan and South Africa. Find out more about your network of interest and detailed information on how to get involved below.

OUR MISSION

The Falling Walls Engage Hubs aim to build a global community of Science Engagers and organisations connecting Science Engagement networks from around the world. The objective is to enable a global dialogue around key issues and challenges in Science Engagement through regional perspectives, while facilitating the building of sustainable partnerships.

As a growing network, the Engage Hubs translate into a series of in-person and virtual activities, from community building and activation events to public science showcases. Our activities are aimed at three main target groups: practitioners, researchers and science-related institutions, and the general publics.

At the institutional level, the Engage Hubs enable partner organisations and institutions to strengthen their global presence, support activities and synergies, and envision new international co-operations.

IN FOCUS IN 2022: PLANETARY HEALTH

Planetary Health is a new academic field and policy framework focusing on the interconnections between human health and environmental sustainability. Bringing together a wide range of disciplines, Planetary Health is concerned with human-caused changes in Earth’s natural systems and their consequences on human health and wellbeing. This framework calls urgent attention to the degradation of our planet, from climate change, species extinction, the pollution of air, water and soil, to the negative impact food production and land use. It urges for joint efforts from multiple sectors, research disciplines, social and political actors to reverse the trend and safeguard our health and the future of our planet.

This year, all events across the international Hub network are stirring up conversations on this topic by exploring innovative research and practices and engaging with regional perspectives at the intersection of health, the environment and engagement.
