How Can We Bring Value To Your Organization?

The World Conference of Science Journalists is much more than a gathering point for members of the World Federation of Science Journalists. It is also an unrivaled opportunity for other organizations to interact with this diverse group and build new partnerships around the conference’s various themes. Such collaborations have been shaped by the three-decade history of this conference in its different venues around the globe, which has enabled the WFSJ to hone guidelines a spirit of mutual understanding and meaningful co-creation. With these goals in mind, the organizers of WCSJ2022 offer these guidelines for prospective partners. When you are ready to start the conversation, please contact:
