    Fascinating post, Juliette, especially regarding sci comms in Africa.

    Your comment about lack of women is well-made, and a source of consternation among my own circle of scientists/wrtiers/communicators. I, also, would like to be involved in a discussion of *why* and what we hope to achieve.

      Yes i do feel that there is a lot of sci comms activities happening on the continent probably not called science communication or public engagement! Would be interesting to find what science communication activities are being used to pick on useful lessons. Ahhhh about the ‘why’ i usually find that i do question why am communicating science and what it is that i intend to achieve and if it is achieved. I think would have been quite interesting to have ‘public’ voice at the event to get feedback from the intended recipient of the science communication activities we do.

      Creo que trabajar con cualquier gobierno es duro, pero es importante encontrar una manera de trabajar en colaboración. La ciencia, principalmente la buena ciencia se supone que es mejorar la vida de los pueblos y gobiernos que pueden poner la buena ciencia a la práctica los beneficios y el público lo reconoce en el tiempo. Sin embargo, dicho esto en el caso de que esto no es posible, i supongo que uno tiene que seguir adelante con ella y hacer lo que hay que hacer a pesar de los inconvenientes.
