016 - Social Justice with Lewis Hou
Aug 17, 2020 Season 2 Episode 16
Amanda Mathieson

This week we talk to the brilliant director of Science Ceilidh, Lewis Hou. Science Ceilidh started out engaging rural communities with science through traditional Scottish dance. But the term 'Ceilidh' is associated with much more than dancing and similarly, Lewis and his team have expanded their activities into all areas of engagement under the banner of 'social justice'. In this episode we explore what social justice means and how we can embed this into our science communication work.
