Invitation to the launch of a book: 'Children As Change Agents for Science and Society’, London, 11 February 2015

European Access Network cordially invites UNICA members to the launch of a new book: ‘Children As Change Agents for Science and Society’ in the Atlee Room, House of Lords, Westminster, London on Wednesday 11 February, 2015 at 3:30 p.m. hosted by Baroness Margaret Sharp of Guildford.

'Children As Change Agents for Science and Society' outlines a radical new educational agenda which places children at the centre of how we meet the challenges of the 21st century. It draws upon the achievements of the European Commission funded SiS Catalyst project led by the University of Liverpool. The SiS Catalyst initiative brought together organisations including civil society bodies and universities, from over 30 countries from across the world, to look at how scientific communities engage with children.

This is the first of a programme of over 20 national launches of this book over the course of 2015, as the children as change agents agenda crosses the globe.

This launch is an opportunity to examine the benefits of better engagement with children with senior leaders from higher education, schools, the not-for-profit and corporate sector alongside policy-makers from both the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) and broader educational communities.

Places for the event are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. If you would like to attend, please email trayer@liv.ac.uk by Friday 9 January 2015. On receipt of your confirmation an official invitation will be sent to you.
