SIS CATALYST. Children as Change Agents for the future of Science in Society

Uploaded by RRI Tools on 01 November 2015



From 31/12/2010 to 30/12/2014

SiS Catalyst was an initiative to foster and support ethical, effective and sustainable engagement between children aged 7-14 years and the social, cultural, political, scientific and educational institutions which make the decisions that will shape their futures.

While seeking to empower children everywhere and influence all kinds of institutions to engage with them, the initiative had a particular focus on strengthening relationships between post-secondary education institutions and the children who, despite ability, currently appear unlikely to enter them.
