Post-Truth: What is it and what can we do about it?
Wednesday 12th of July 2017 Tredegar House , Newport, Wales, NP10 8YW 12:00pm - 2:00pm
Alliance for Useful Evidence in partnerships with the Royal Statistical Society are hosting a second 'Post-Truth' meeting, this time in Newport Wales. This follows an initial 'post truth' event held earlier this year at the Royal Statistical Society (and which is available to watch here).
Featuring speakers from locally based organisations such as the People and Work Unit, the Office for National Statistics' Newport campus and Cardiff Business School, the panel will discuss what ‘post-truth’ is, and whether this new word describes an already familiar problem. The panel will also explore what can be done to ensure that statistics, facts and evidence are part of a balanced debate in the media and politics.
This is a free event but attendees must register first.
