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.
