Fake or True? - and how important is this for science and society?
Knowledge is of great importance to our society. But how do we communicate this? How do we deal with someone who does not recognize facts as such? What responsibility do we have as scientists (and do we have any at all)? Take part in the interactive workshop of Jonas Wittwer (science philosopher ETH; member of the Swiss Study Foundation) and Fabienne Odermatt (Master International Relations, SOAS; former participant Schweizer Jugend forscht), both of whom work for the think tank "reatch". Held in High German (hosts understand English and French).
