How is truth important for a healthy democracy? What are the sources for getting and testing the truth? Where and how do untruths threaten the health of democracy? And what can we do, as a society and as individuals, to meet these challenges? In this series we’ll work together to explore these questions and more in relation to three different areas where truth plays a vital role: the news media, science, and education.
Please join us online, via Zoom, on Wednesday, March 22, 2 – 3:15 PM ET for the second of 3 discussions in this series to discuss Science, Truth, and Democracy. In this second session we’ll ask participants to explore why science is important for a health democracy? What are the challenges for truth and democracy that are related to science? And what are some different ways for a democratic society to meet those challenges?

These small-group conversations will be facilitated by the Interactivity Foundation. The Interactivity Foundation is dedicated to fostering generous and highly participatory conversations where we can help each other consider diverse perspectives, think broadly and deeply about issues, and imagine alternative possibilities for the future. Our small-group conversations are designed for collaborative exploration. They are not debates or arguments. We focus on helping each other to explore the broader meanings, concerns, challenges, ideas, and different possibilities for the topic.
