Class Notes:
TOPIC: Communicating Science for Environmental Policy Why does resistance to and mistrust of science persist surrounding environmental issues? And what can we do about it? This half-semester section of PA 5715 (Deliberating STEP) will focus on how we use and communicate science for environmental policymaking, key areas of bias, and strategies for better communicating scientific information to different audiences. We will explore sources of mistrust in scientific information, cognitive biases that impact comprehension of scientific knowledge, and strategies to overcome such challenges in policy areas heavily reliant on scientific knowledge.
