Course Summary

The world faces a range of significant global challenges including food and water shortages, energy security, climate change, human and animal diseases, and counter-terrorism. Science and engineering can provide solutions to these and more. But none of the answers the world requires will be realized if the skills we need to communicate them have been neglected.

As science and engineering professionals, we must continue to work effectively with each other and with other stakeholders both in Government and elsewhere. We all have an instrumental role to play in developing and delivering the policy solutions needed to mitigate these issues. Perhaps most importantly, we must ensure a fully informed public is kept up to speed.

Learning Objectives

The key to better understanding is better communication and as well as our collective need to improve verbal communication. It is in our writing that the impact of our messages must be maximized.

Professor John Beddington, Government Chief Scientific Adviser
