"Language barriers are of course significant, but the dominance of English is not the problem. If all lanaguages were equal in their usage, cross-border communication would be even more difficult. My view is that every country should have a science…"

"Interesting. However, these obstacles cannot be generalised. They are highly cultural dependent. Ther are countries where the media are highly interested in science. But low focus of governments on science seems to be quite widespread."

I've been a newspaper editor, agriculture and science journalist most of my life and edit an R&D newsletter and science website (ScienceAlert). I now mainly help scientific institutions with their communication challenges - which means there is plenty of work!
I'm particularly interested in the issue of whether science communicators can "save the world". Science is generating more and more knowledge and less and less of it is getting to the people who need it. This is widening the gap between the knowledge haves and have-nots and transferring wealth from the poor to the already wealthy. I see it as the singular challenge of our age. Science has solutions to many global problems, but is falling down on the delivery. That's up to us. I have worked on these issues as a journalist, a science communicator and in international science communication. I'm happy to link up with anyone else who shares these interests.

Obstacles to effective science communication

Mike and colleagues -

I would like to invite every member of the network to list the three greatest obstacles, in their view, to effective communication of science and sharing of knowledge, internationally and within countries.

I would encourage the network to debate the issues thus raised, to prioritise the most important and to develop a plan of action for addressing them.
