We need to know more about research in ethics. Today more than ever, science leads to radical changes in the way we look at the world and the way we transform it. These changes are everybody's concern, young people included. By influencing these changes, science communication activities have heavy consequences and with them come great responsabilities. What tools do we have to apprehend this responsibility more effectively?
In their everyday tasks, people involved in science in society activities meet people from very different age groups, socio-economic backgrounds, religions, from both genders, etc. When we speak to children, we know that they have very different ways of perceiving science, influenced both by their family and social background, and by their various expectations or values. Do we know how to take this into account in our activities? What tools do we have to do it better?
And let's not forget the important matters regarding private life, the right to control one's image or respect for differences...
Let us know about questions you have about these issues, about the problems you may have faced and the solutions you have since come up with!
