Paris Accords of Science Communication
The Paris Accords of Science Communication offers journalists the opportunity to interact with scientific experts and learn better ways to communicate science to the public. This four-day training program will cover issues such as the neuroscience of hate, the science of pain, social determinants of health, childhood trauma and its lifelong impact, and the plight of refugees and victims of human trafficking; and more. Journalists will also participate in field trips to scientific institutions.
The training will be held Oct. 21-24 in Paris.
The all-expenses-paid fellowship covers airfare, ground transportation, hotel costs and most meals. NPF offers this professional development opportunity for journalists to enhance skills, increase knowledge and recharge their reporting on one of today’s most critical issues.
