Here's my talk from the Canadian Society for Ecology and Evolution Nooner Workshop on Thursday 19th July 2018: The why and how of Tweeting Science, with Dr. Shoshanah Jacobs and friends, held at Guelph University, Ontario, Canada.
I hope that the other superb talks by excellent Canadian scientists on social media will also be made available online, Open Access.

Tweeting your Science to Policymakers for CSEE 2018 annual conference

  1. 1. Communicating Science to policymakers Dawn Bazely @dawnbazely University Professor Biology Department York University Toronto
  2. 2. My roadmap… for situating science ❖ …acknowledges that ecological research is one of many factors influencing policy, along with economics, values, emotions & political will. ❖ …encourages scientists to be confident in defending peer- reviewed results and not conflating them with policy and politics... here’s how:
  3. 3. Three-3-questions 1.What is policy & who makes it? 2.How do policymakers hear about science research? 3.What to keep in mind when tweeting about science to policymakers? Talk Topics OPS = Ontario Public Service
  4. 4. What is a policy? ❖ “A policy is typically described as a principle or rule to guide decisions and achieve rational outcome(s). The term is not normally used to denote what is actually done, this is normally referred to as either procedure or protocol” ❖ Wikipedia ❖ See also: Evidence-Based Policy Context
  5. 5. Context Who makes policy? Closed door session at COP23 in Bonn, Germany — government Climate Change negotiators
  6. 6. Know your relevant policy documents & players The science-policy- politics ecosystem Hoogensen, Bazely et al. International Polar Year- related books & articles Context Politicians
  7. 7. Know your relevant policy documents & players The science-policy- politics ecosystem Hoogensen, Bazely et al. International Polar Year- related books & articles Context Politicians
  8. 8. Three-3-questions 1.What is policy & who makes it? 2.How do policymakers hear about science research? 3.What to keep in mind when tweeting about science to policymakers? Talk Topics Café at the closed zone at COP23 Policymakers
  9. 9. Where do policymakers hear about science research? ❖ Usually NOT from reading your journal papers ❖ Sometimes from executive & plain language summaries ❖ Also, from 🗣🍻📺📻💻📱🖥 ❖ eg Klenk & Wyatt. 2015. Forest Policy & Economics. 61:77-86. Science to policy pathways
  10. 10. –Oxford English Living Dictionary “Websites and applications that enable users to create and share content or to participate in social networking.” Definition of Social Media Science to policy pathways
  11. 11. scientists find social media useful Science to policy pathways
  12. 12. Three-3-questions 1.What is policy & who makes it? 2.How do policymakers hear about science research? 3.What to keep in mind when tweeting about science to policymakers? Talk Topics
  13. 13. Know your policy-politics landscape ❖ The relevant policy documents for your research ❖ Aim to meet and speak with the players — policy makers & influencers ❖ Make your research Open Access Reaching out to policymakers
  14. 14. Practice communicating in interdisciplinary spaces ❖ collaborations between science academics, NGOs and government bureaucrats (multiple stakeholder groups) ≠ ❖ collaborations between science academics and different kinds of academics from the social sciences and humanities ❖ they are, all, nonetheless, “interdisciplinary” situations Reaching out to policymakers
  15. 15. Craft clear, short, strong messages Reaching out to policymakers
  16. 16. Don’t be a patronizing scientist… the fastest route to people zoning out 🙉 is claiming science is objective & neutral “The value-laden nature of science: … most natural scientists have been brought up on the notion that science is value neutral. This belief proves to be a barrier both to working across disciplines and to doing good science.” Lélé & Norgaard. 2005. Practicing Interdisciplinarity. BioScience 55:967 Reaching out to policymakers
  17. 17. Your challenge ❖ choose one policy-relevant research result that you want policy-makers to know about ❖ ID two organizations/people that develop or influence policy ❖ compose a policy-relevant tweet with hashtag & url to your OA research ❖ Can it work? ❖ YES — OMNR Minister Donna Cansfield (2009) rolled out the evidence-based Provincial Human- Wildlife Conflict policy that she back-burnered after political advocacy, after I met with her in 2009 Reaching out to policymakers
