About the Event

During a major election year, news headlines and political platforms often highlight taxes, jobs, and security issues. But what about science? Can issues like climate change, public health, or technology influence a voter’s decision? And how does media coverage vary in an election year and shape the conversation?

Join the Institute for Science & Policy, in collaboration with SWARM and the Center for Social and Environmental Futures, for an evening reception and panel discussion exploring how science can take either a front or back seat in national, state, and local elections. Drinks and hors d'oeuvres will be provided. Speakers include:

Matt Burgess, Director, Center for Social and Environmental Futures, University of Colorado, Boulder

Laura Helmuth, Editor-in-Chief, Scientific American

Alec Tyson, Associate Director, Science and Society, Pew Research Center

Moderated by Kristan Uhlenbrock, Executive Director, The Institute for Science & Policy, and SWARM board member
