Jalandhar, August 14
Pushpa Gujral Science City celebrated Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav by organising a webinar on science communication and national development. More than 100 students and teachers from different educational institutions of Punjab participated in the webinar. The event was celebrated to commemorate 75 years of progressive India and the glorious history of its people, culture and achievements.
GS Rautela, former DG, NCSM, was the key speaker on the occasion. Delivering his talk, he said the public has increasingly become aware of and interested in scientific development such as medicine, climate change, telecom etc., which directly affected them. However, the perception of some that science and technology are harsh and are the root cause of environmental degradation and other ill effects on our planet, as well as the inadequate science literacy and gap in knowledge of experts and common people still exists. Science communication, therefore, has crucial role of initiating national development efforts by motivating people to embrace science and technology.
It also strives to increase understanding and appreciation of science and technology as useful ways of understanding modern world as well as for informed decision making. Another important role of science communication is empowering people with authentic knowledge and skills for sustainable development, he added
