Objective

As public and policy communicators, most of us struggle on daily basis with the difficulties of promoting an informed public debate on sustainable development and other relevant public-interest issues. Disinformation, fake news or simple accumulation of messages makes it difficult to foster public conversations on issues that require our urgent attention. Using global health, climate and migration examples, this session will address this challenge and the potential solutions to overcome it. 

Debate between Ambassador for Global Health Nora Kronig-Romero, Vice-Director and Head of the Division of International Affairs of the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health, Anna Ayuso, Senior Research Fellow at CIDOB, and Gonzalo Fanjul, Director of Research at porCausa and Director of Policy at ISGlobal, moderated by Pol Morillas, Director of CIDOB.
