About the Project
The efforts of science communication of the last 20 years, such as polished magazines and science slams have reached only a small part of society. People who are rarely or not at all in touch with science have largely been left out. Also we can observe a loss of trust in science among society. Hosted by Falling Walls in cooperation with the Robert Bosch Stiftung Falling Walls Engage seeks to spread scientific literacy, with a special focus on “hard-to-reach” target groups in order to increase their ability to participate in society. The program fosters an international call for all forms of science engagement. The call is geared to projects with particular focus on impact and cost-effective and novel approaches to building opportunities for dialogue and participation. The best submissions will be invited to share their science engagement projects in a fast-paced pitch competition in front of a peer audience and a distinguished jury. The best idea will be elected as “Falling Walls Science Engagement of the Year”. All invited projects will be showcased in videos to promote the ideas and inspire others.
