Tête-à-tête Sweden: Conversations about science engagement around the world

Thursday, February 16, 2023 10:00to11:00

Around the globe, people dedicate their lives to the fascinating, weird, and powerful world of science. Falling Walls Engage works to deepen the impact of these individuals through meaningful conversations and actions. In that spirit, Falling Walls Engage Hub Canada presents a virtual series where you hear directly from leading “science engagers” from every corner of the planet.

The Tête-à-tête Sweden exchange will feature Maria Hagardt, Hub Manager of Falling Walls Engage Hub Sweden and the International Relations & Communications Manager at Vetenskap & Allmänhet (VA Public & Science).

Please join us for a discussion about what it means to be a science engagement practitioner in Sweden today—and what engagers from around the world can learn from their work.  

Attending this virtual conversation is free, but registration is required. A Zoom link will be sent to registrants on the day before the event.

If you can’t take part this time, don’t worry, the recording will be available on the Engage Hub Canada website shortly after the event. Plus, there will be more Tête-à-têtes in the coming months. Stay tuned!
