The theme: Pushing boundaries

Boundaries are an essential part of identity: they separate what we are from what we aren’t, what we do from what we won’t do. As the world around us and we ourselves change, boundaries need to be constantly negotiated and redefined. Exploring, challenging and shaping boundaries is crucial if we want to grow and develop as a sector, organisation or individual. However, we must also challenge our own understanding of science and expand the boundaries of how we communicate science. It is by pushing our own boundaries for science communication that we ourselves become inspired to walk down new and creative paths. The Ecsite conference celebrates its 30th edition and we invite the science engagement community to build on three decades of science communication and look ahead, pushing the boundaries of our field and practices.
