The Science for All Expert Group has developed an action plan, in discussion with Government and other stakeholders in response to the Science and Society consultation to:

  • deliver a shift in cultural awareness, recognition and support for science by building on the Science:[So what? So everything] campaign
  • develop a co-ordinated public engagement framework which is sufficiently flexible to recognise a range of engagement activity (professional & volunteer, national & local) and creates the conditions for increased participation and debate
  • achieve greater acknowledgement of the importance of public engagement activity supported by increased training and recognition in all sectors
  • ensure public perspectives are sought, recognised and responded to by the scientific and policy communities

The report and action plan were published in February 2010 and since then a Science for All Follow-up Group has been established and actions progressed.   This is your place to stay updated on progress.  An updated action plan has been published to show progress in this area.
