Inhoud
Major concerns shared by people often involve communication, as their cause, the possible solution, or both. A challenge-based approach on science calls for students to understand, study and engage with societal challenges in domains such as health, demographic change, security, efficient energy, governance, sustainability, inclusion, and freedom. In this course, students will practice setting their footprint by exploring a societal challenge from a communication perspective. Working in groups of students with different master specializations, students will focus on one societal challenge using a combination of fieldwork and literature research. Students analyse the societal challenge from the perspective of their specialization, and to collectively write an advice report on the role of communication.
