Education is the only antidote to disease of fear and hatred

01 Sep 2016
by Michel Buchel, President of Ecsite and CEO of NEMO, Amsetrdan, NEMO
Responsible science to me goes beyond politics and economics. I’m convinced that we have a role to play in fostering democratic thinking.

People feel uncertain and scared amid current events in Europe and beyond, including the Brexit, the coup in Turkey, racial tensions in the US and terrorist attacks around the globe. These events impact on our daily lives as global trends increasingly influence local situations.

Science centres and organisations that engage people with science advocate the strongest medicine against purely emotional responses and ineffective fears: education.

Education, decisions based on evidence and critical thinking, lively debates and respect for different opinions are the best remedies against fear and hate. Science, like sports and the arts, grows best in an open and culturally rich environment.

Science engagement practitioners stand for democratic values and believe in the power of true cooperation. The real threats to our planet do not care about borders, race or religion. They need smart solutions, brilliant technologies and an understanding we’re in it together.

Ecsite and the science engagement community will keep doing what it’s really good at: engaging people with science and technology topics, connecting formal and informal learning, inspiring thousands of people each day with our lectures, programmes, workshops and debates. We nurture creative and innovative thinking every day and in many ways and places. That is what we do. Opening doors, finding new entrances and the starting points of new solutions for the next generations.

Responsible science to me goes beyond politics and economics. I’m convinced that we have a role to play in fostering democratic thinking.
