Accessible Science | Inclusive Media Education for Diverse Societies

On 11 and 12 November 2021, CICANT marked a strong presence in the workshop "Inclusive Media Education for Diverse Societies", organised in a hybrid model by the University of Groningen.

Responding to the effort of making science more open and accessible to everyone, the workshop included illustrations of the different activities. Thus, all people, regardless of their scientific literacy, could learn more about the importance of media education in promoting diversity.
