The sciencehorizons project has now been in full swing for nearly
3 months and both the small group discussion and large facilitated
public events are being run all over the UK. Over 2,000 discussion
packs for small group discussions have now been sent out, and the
first responses are beginning to be returned on paper and entered
online. Results can be viewed online as soon as they have been
entered and you can already take
a look at a variety of interesting
responses from both small
groups and facilitated discussions.
The first session of the sciencehorizons deliberative panel is
due to take place this weekend at the At-Bristol science centre.
Participants will discuss the sciencehorizons issues in depth at
two day-long facilitated sessions, in order to provide us with
insights into how people respond to the materials when they have
the time and opportunity to explore issues in depth with others.
The participants will have the opportunity to request further information
and resources from experts to be presented to them at the next
We still want as many people as possible to join in and have discussions
to help us get an understanding of people's hopes and fears and
help build a picture of the complexity of some of these future
If you would like to run a discussion event with a local community
group, friends, colleagues, or family, you can now view all the
materials online and request them in hard copy from the website
or by emailing [email protected].
If you are interested in facilitating a larger public discussion
event please get
in contact - we may be able to help with
marketing, facilitation or a contribution to the costs.
