Communicating Astronomy with the Public
The world’s largest conference on astronomy communication: Communicating Astronomy with the Public (CAP 2022) is taking place this week in Sydney. Professionals from science communication, informal education, planetariums and science centers, as well as professional and amateur astronomers, journalists and creative personalities, are attending to exchange ideas and best practices. The conference is hosted by Macquarie University, the International Astronomical Union (IAU) Commission C2 -- Communicating Astronomy with the Public (CAP), and the IAU Office for Astronomy Outreach, The central theme of "Communicating Astronomy for a Better World" recognizes the significance of astronomy and science communication in a world besieged by crises. What role can astronomy communication play? Where is it most effective? How should astronomy communicators collaborate with the broader science communication and scientific communities? Given the rich wealth of indigenous knowledge and culture in Australia, contributions related to indigenous astronomy, cultural astronomy, and archeo-astronomy have also been encouraged.
