About the project
Whenever scientific results seem to contradict what we consider "common sense", they are easily attackable in the public debate. Also, scientists are challenged by the alternative media and self-proclaimed experts whose views are spread unfiltered via the internet and social media. To gain trust and strengthen its credibility, the science community must enter into a dialog with different social groups and also address people who otherwise have little exposure to science. Mensch Wissenschaft! (Science, Man!) aims to breathe life into the often-mentioned dialog between science and society. The event format seeks to provide an example of how an actual dialog between scientists and non-scientists can succeed, even and especially across social classes.
