Daniela Ferreira da Silva presents at SciComPT 24

On 9 May, Daniela Ferreira da Silva gave a presentation titled “The (re)construction of science in the discourses of climate activist groups” at SciComPT 2014 – Languages and voices for accessible science. The conference took place in Braga, at Uminho from 8-10 May. The presentation, co-authored with Anabela Carvalho, focused on research suggesting that identifying young activists merely or predominantly as ambassadors or communicators of the scientific message is a simplistic evaluation. In the analysis of results, a more nuanced form of the use of science by Portuguese activist groups was discussed.
