Event description

Description

Ask for Evidence is a national campaign launched by Sense about Science that helps people request the evidence behind news stories, marketing claims and policies. We are holding a FREE community conference as part of Everybody’s Reading Festival.

A panel including your local Ask for Evidence ambassador and other campaigners on evidence will discuss how challenging claims and asking for evidence can improve public life.

Panellists include:

  • Emma Friedmann, East Midlands Ask for Evidence ambassador and #FACSaware Campaign Director

  • Alex Clegg, Campaigns and Communications Coordinator at Sense about Science

  • John Coster, Journalist, Educator, Documentarian

  • University students will discuss how they find evidence to inform their studies

This will be followed by a Q&A discussion
Support materials will be available to take away after the event.

The event is fully accessible to people with any disability – please contact Emma Friedmann for more information: 07739411373.
