No funny business here…

With increasing controversy about a number of contested science issues globally, having a national space dedicated to discussing the communication of science matters. We are delighted to bring to you nofunnybusiness.net, a new place for exploring science communication issues, highlighting science communication successes, and engaging your networks and public in online science commentary and events.

Building the Inspiring Australia community

Around Australia, hundreds of scientists, science communicators, outreach officers, teachers and students are running engagement projects, planning National Science Week events and entering science awards – all with the support of Inspiring Australia. From harvesting traditional knowledge in the Tiwi Islands in the Top End to mapping marine species in the Southern Ocean, they’re helping to support and promote science and science literacy across the country.

Though we work in disparate offices and diverse organisations around the country, together we’re a community. We want to build and strengthen that community and we’re working with the Inspiring Australia team to build a communication platform to do just that.
