Why Facts Don’t Change Minds (NYC)

News Story

So you want to share your scientific knowledge, but need a compelling CliffsNotes version. Look no further! Learn the psychology behind effective communication on Wednesday, February 27.

Environmental managers need to communicate scientific information to the public, but are often in need of tools for effective and meaningful messaging. This workshop will discuss recent research on the psychology of science communication and lead participants in exercises to enhance science communication with the public, such as storytelling and emotional reasoning.

The talk will be led by Pace Assistant Professor Anne Toomey, PhD, and Piyush Tantia, chief innovation officer and board member at ideas42, a social enterprise that uses insights from behavioral economics to invent fresh solutions to tough social problems.
