The event aimed to inform the general public on science-related news that have an impact on their and the planet's future.

The workshop, titled “Reporting the science of climate change” took place in Pretoria, South Africa, from 4 to 5 June 2012. It focused on climate change science, as well as on key risks to Southern Africa, national and regional response strategies, and particularly on how best to communicate complex information to the general public.

Interview with Mandi Smallhorne, freelance science journalist and participant from the world of journalism: "If the scientist recognises what is unique selling point of a particular piece of research, the journalist is going to pick up on it more easily."
