There is a disconnection between what scientists discover and what politicians decide. One of the reasons for this is the lack of communication between them. This is even worse when decisions on the health of our planet are at stake. Climate change is the most infamous example: while it’s crystal clear from the scientist’s angle, political inaction is the norm.
Therefore, to help scientists communicate with politicians clearly and effectively, the Bern Convention of the Council of Europe commissioned us this communication guide.
Therein, we break down the basics of scientific communication while deepening in the biases that prevent us from acting against climate change. And we also give a few strokes on how to communicate with politicians, which is never a simple task!
