BCMW2022: Using Our Voices – ScienceUpFirst and Working Together to Fight Online Misinformation

Museums, galleries, science centres, and heritage organizations are amongst the most trusted institutions in our society. On the first day of BC Museums Week explore how cultural organizations are defying the expectation that they remain “neutral” and using their voice to make a difference.

ScienceUpFirst is a national initiative that works with a collective of independent scientists, researchers, health care experts and science communicators. They share the best available science in creative ways to stop the spread of misinformation.

Join us for a conversation on how misinformation and disinformation are spread and how to address them.
