BRINGING TOGETHER LATIN AMERICAN AND INTERNATIONAL SCIENCE ENGAGERS
To continue our Hub series, we partnered up with Fundación Ciencia Joven in August 2020 to bring together and connect science engagers from Latin America and all around the world.
With the launch of this third Falling Walls Engage Hub, we wanted to put a spotlight on the rich and diverse Science Engagement scene in Latin America. On two consecutive days, Hub participants had the chance to virtually meet and exchange with inspiring Science Engagers and Science Engagement institutions – regionally as well as internationally from within the Falling Walls Engage community.
The Engage Hub launch event took place on Thursday 27 and Friday 28 August 2020 from 10 am-12 pm Argentinian time (3-5 pm CEST).
The virtual gatherings gave all Science Engagers the opportunity to get a glimpse of the current state of Science Engagement on the continent, share their experiences and solutions on how to engage the public, and explore potential collaborations to expand their network and activities.
We invited 10 international and 10+ regional Science Engagers from across Latin America to take part in the Engage Hub Launch.
Following the launch, we kicked off the 48h Future of Science Engagement Sciethon with the STEM Youth from Ciencia Joven.
