Data and evidence are powerful communications tools, enhancing or undermining conservation narratives depending on how they are framed and shared. How can we use data stories to inspire positive action for nature and what are the pitfalls and risks of misrepresenting the science and opening ourselves up to criticism?
Data Stories, organised by the Natural History Consortium, is a one day workshop bringing together researchers and practitioners from the biological recording and citizen science community with communications professionals from across the spectrum of policy, conservation, media and research. Together it will explore the opportunities and challenges of using data to communicate about biodiversity issues as well as using communications techniques to support citizen science outcomes.
An interactive programme is planned, utilising a diverse set of formats through the day to encourage active participation and engagement, whilst facilitating networking and discussion.
