The European Association for Bioindustries – EuropaBio – is urging scientists to communicate that their work is key to solving the world’s biggest challenges

In an age of heightened awareness to the interconnected and growing nature of societal problems, one that is too often polluted by fake news peddled by those with no interest in the planet’s future, the truth has to be shouted as loudly – and as often – as possible.

We had an article get the facts on GMO crops on these pages earlier this year, for example, showcasing some initiatives in Europe and America helping to bridge the misinformation gap in this particular field.

So we echo the message from EuropaBio scientists: stand up! and tell your stories.
