Science Communication - A Key to solving the Climate Crisis

Scientists are primarily experts in their respective research topics. However, especially in times of crisis, they also become important communicators and multipliers, a role that is not always easy to fulfil. Many researchers are now taking on this new challenge and are finding different ways to communicate their work to a wider public. The methods of science communication are as diverse as the research itself: it is always about information, knowledge transfer and participation.

Why is clear and good science communication so important in the climate crisis?
What expectations does the public have of science and can or must it fulfil them?
How can scientists be supported in communication and knowledge transfer?
