April 2021 - 'How can I run a food lab or living lab. I would like to train people on food system transformation. What do I do?' These are just a few of the questions that the FIT4FOOD2030 Knowledge Hub tries to answer for a variety of users, from civil society organisations to policy makers to facilitators in science engagement organisations. It gathers tools for working with communities and different publics on the topic of food systems and transformation in a one-stop shop. These resources have been tried and tested throughout the three year lifespan of the project.

April 2021 - 'As a just society, we should ensure everyone has enough affordable, nutritious food to lead a healthy life, while protecting people’s health, our climate, planet and communities.' This is the challenge taken up by a new PlayDecide game - a card game for simple, respectful and fact-based group discussion - created using the results of the EU-funded FIT4FOOD2030 project and with input from food system stakeholders and science engagement professionals.

Report
Spokes resource
December 2020 - The Space Talks online series took place on the 27th November, 1-2 December 2020 and were attended by 39 participants. It was a great opportunity to reconnect with Ecsite Space Group members and welcome some new participants despite the physical distance imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic. It consisted of informal networking, projects showcase and news sharing session on some very exciting current and upcoming activities from the European Space Agency. It was an inspiring experience providing a good opportunity to reflect and connect.

YESTEM
Spokes resource
November 2020 - YESTEM, a 4-year Science Learning+ Partnership project funded by the American National Science Foundation and the British Wellcome Trust have just launched the Equity Compass. This tool has been developed from their research for supporting socially just practice in informal STEM learning. While informal STEM learning settings have a lot of potential to engage diverse communities, on the whole the sector does not have a diverse participation profile.
Equity
Spokes resource
November 2020 - A new framework tool, developed by the Equity@Ecsite group, is currently being piloted across Europe. Supported by the Ecsite Collaborative Grant for 2020, this pan-European project focuses on supporting organisations to take their next steps in re-examining and embedding Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) across all areas of science centre and museum work.
