Science Communication Research Retreat: Writing, Thinking & Collaborating

  • Waihoanga Centre 32 Waihoanga Road Hautere, Wellington, 5581 New Zealand (map)

As many of you are aware, next April the Public Communication of Science and Technology Conference (PCST 2018) is bringing scholars and practitioners of science communication and public engagement to New Zealand from all around the world.

We'd like to take this opportunity to invite you to join us the following week to decompress, expand your ideas, and build deeper connections with other colleagues in this field. This event is open to anyone - including Science Technology and Society (STS) and other public engagement scholars and practitioners who are not intending on joining the PCST conference.

The retreat will take place from the afternoon of Monday, April 9th, until the morning of Thursday, April 12th, at the beautiful Waihoanga Centre, about an hour north of Wellington. While we hope that participants will join for the whole time, we also understand that you might have other commitments -- so you're welcome to come for just part of the time as well (contact us if you have specific requirements).

The cost of the retreat is NZ$380 per person, which will include all meals and accommodation. There is a cap of 30 attendees.

Bookings are available at:

We hope to see you there.
