Hi everyone,

Hope you're having a great Tuesday morning! We're ramping up social media
efforts for next month's Global Science Advice to Governments conference
<http://www.globalscienceadvice.org/> and I think a few of the below
activities could be interesting to many of you.
1/ Join #SciAdvice14 Twitter chat with Sir Peter Gluckman, NZ science

We're very excited to announce a Twitter chat with New Zealand's chief
science advisor, Sir Peter Gluckman on Thurs 14 Aug at 10am CET:
bit.ly/1p8CTzr <http://t.co/iQAbtFO605>

He'll be happy to answer questions about the conference, relationships
between scientists and policymakers, science advice during crises or when
the situation is political, what is working in different countries, what
role can young people play, how to build trust and independence, plus much

I really encourage you to take part in the Tweet chat! We'll be accepting
questions in the lead up but most of the action will take place for the
hour that Peter will be talking to us.

Would appreciate if you could spread to your networks - here is a suggested
few posts you could use:
