Our Story

The importance of scientific communication

In recent decades, thanks to the continuous scientific progress and the advent of new technologies, science has occupied an ever more central place in our society. Two major obstacles arise from this: how to ensure the link between science and the general public through information, transparency, and education?; and how to provide with the correct and adapted use of science and technology by each actor of the society, from citizens to their representatives? Scientific communication is among the most engaging responses to these concerns. Unfortunately, some scientific disciplines, especially natural sciences, are rarely highlighted. Despite their capital importance to meet current challenges, from climate change to the exploration of other planetary systems, the public is rarely aware of the important problematics on which natural sciences researchers work. 

The creation of SciencEscape

Faced with this observation, a group of PhDs in geosciences created in 2021 a non-profit association based in Geneva officially recognized as being ‘of public utility’ specializing in science outreach and communication (see Statutes). Its primary goal is the production of aesthetic and educational videos, by scientists and professional video makers, focused mainly on research topics that have impact on the society. This association offers to the general public multimedia content, especially documentaries relating the adventures of scientists in the field. Most of the association members have a wide-ranging expertise in “System Earth” with in depth-knowledge of climate issues related to rivers flooding, desertification, and global warming impacts on corals. All the association members passionate about outdoor video production, they combine practical experience in the field acquired during exploratory scientific campaigns and the latest academic advances such that we are in a unique position to understand and best broadcast scientific messages to the general public. 

Targeted audience

We use our audiovisual productions as essential tools to disseminate scientific messages to a wide audience, exploring various communication channels. All our creations are freely accessible on the web, social media, and public television, ensuring maximum outreach. Our commitment also lies in fostering direct exchanges between scientists and the general public, as well as with students, to strengthen the connection between science and society. That's why a significant part of our mission is dedicated to disseminating our productions through the organization of interactive public screening events, workshops in schools, and active participation in numerous scientific film festivals.
