WCSJ2013 provides excellent opportunities for science journalists and communication professionals to meet and to engage in international dialogue with researchers, decision makers, and citizens. Science journalists will be able to exchange ideas and discuss their roles in the new and rapidly-changing media landscape.
A world conference organised by and for science journalists is a unique event. Science journalism faces many challenges. WCSJ2013 provides an agenda for revisiting our values and approaches in interactive sessions. There will be a special emphasis on cultural events, while not forgetting the source of our daily bread – science news.
The host organisations, the Finnish Association of Science Editors and Journalists (FASEJ) and the World Federation of Science Journalists (WFSJ), will be very happy to meet you in Helsinki during the peak of the white nights of Finnish summer. Come, get inspired and interact!
Looking forward to seeing you all in Helsinki
Ms Satu Lipponen President,
World Conference of Science Journalists 2013
Mr. Vesa Niinikangas President,
World Federation of Science Journalists
