Environment(s) in Public? workshop announcement

Environment(s) in Public?’ Workshop, University of East Anglia, 2-3rd November 2014 Co-organised by the Science in Public Network; 3S research group; and Broads Authority Researchers studying the interactions between science and society argue that rather than thinking about ‘the public’, models of multiple ‘publics’ interacting with specific, situated scientific ideas offers a better way of understanding scientific communication, public engagement and policy impact. However, this risks losing sight of broader concepts such as public debate, the public interest, or what it means to say or do something in public. In turn, we can ask what does it mean to talk about ‘the environment’? Given that many passionately engaged environmental debates have been focused on and in particular places, would it help to abandon this abstraction and instead talk about places: particular ‘environments’ and how they are changing? Could it be more productive to ground environmental debates in mo

Upcoming conference: MICE - Mistakes, Ignorance, Contingency and Error in Science and Technology, Fürstenfeldbruck

Hello everyone, We have an upcoming international conference at TUM (Technical University Munich). I am sorry to say that our deadline for applications is already over. However, if you are interested in the topic and our projects, please feel free to contact us at mice@mzwtg.mwn.de .

There is no zero risk and, all best efforts notwithstanding, never will be. Since all techno-scientific activity will increase complexity, it permanently erodes the foundations of scientifically guided search for security. More science cannot solve this problem; at best it can elevate it to a higher level of complexity. Old problems don‘t just disappear; they are being replaced by new problems. MICE can only be eradicate
