The six regional networks of science centres and museums that span the globe––ASPAC, ASTC, Ecsite, NAMES, RedPOP, and SAASTEC––are together offering three online Forums for their members’ chief executives on the science-engagement field response to, and recovery from, the Covid-19 pandemic.
With the Covid-19 crisis, science centres and museums, as well as other science engagement organisations worldwide, are facing similar challenges and opportunities, which affect and modify their financial sustainability, their organisational structures and needs, and their societal role.
In these three Forums, up to 85 leaders from around the world will share their reflections and put their collective intelligence together to understand, focus, and distill the new opportunities and challenges brought by the pandemic.
