Caren Cooper: Scientists Should Talk to the Public, but Also Listen

Caren Cooper published a blog on Scientific American website: “Scientists Should Talk to the Public, but Also Listen” which also includes a citation from me and mentioning the work of Mapping for Change.

She writes: “Why is it when scientists talk to the public, they’re said to be communicating, but when the public talks to scientists, they are crazy to think scientists will listen?” providing examples from different cases, including the recent environmental catastrophe at Flint, Michigan.
