This is an online meeting.
This is a funder-only gathering.
In partnership with the Civic Science Fellows Program, the Rita Allen Foundation, and Philanthropy for Active Civic Engagement (PACE), join us on July 11 from 12 noon – 1:15 p.m. ET to dive into research and pilot programs exploring the promise of civic science cross-field collaborations to advance science and democracy through journalism. The conversation will feature:
- Findings from research from the Center for Cooperative Media at Montclair State University examining 155 cross-field collaborations between journalists and civil society organizations in 125 countries around the world, supported by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
- A new pilot program, co-designed by the Center for Cooperative Media and the Rita Allen Foundation, to provide grants and coaching to help initiate cross-field collaborations focused on civic science.
- From New York City, an early-stage collaboration between WNYC, the Bodega and Small Business Group, and the social science research group Knology.
- A big-picture look at the ecosystem of civic information and why new collaboration is essential.
This Civic Science Connect session will address the critical role of cross-field collaborations between journalism and civil society organizations, best practices for building collaborative work, and emerging insights for those interested in engaging in this area.
