Empowering Citizens with Evidence Panel
We hear about evidence in many different parts of our lives. From the words of politicians to product advertisements, “evidence” is commonly cited as a way to justify actions and to persuade. Similarly, we often rely on the evidence available to us to make decisions in our daily lives. But how do we know what evidence is reliable when there is so much misleading information, or where to look when no evidence is provided? Join E4D and Globe and Mail reporter, Carly Weeks, for a conversation with representatives from the Global Commission on Evidence, Science Up First, and The Samara Centre for Democracy, as we discuss how citizens can develop skills to better understand and engage with evidence, and how these skills can be used to contribute to a healthier society and democracy.
