2023 World Conference of Science Journalists

Event Date: 
March 27, 2023 to March 31, 2023

Upended by world events, the 12th World Conference of Science Journalists (WCSJ) in Medellín, Colombia will now take place March 27-31, 2023. Participants will begin and end each day with a walk through lush natural beauty as the event will be held in the stunning Jardin Botánico, a 13-hectare forest in the middle of a thriving Latin American city.

The World Conference of Science Journalists takes place every two years, and is the largest international event for science journalists to gather as peers, helping one another learn, grow, and thrive. The event has not happened since 2019 because of the COVID-19 pandemic and brings together some of the World Federation of Science Journalists’ 15,000 members in 53 countries.

During the conference, attendees will enjoy seminars, workshops, lectures and access to expertise from around the world. There will be opportunities to build contacts with other journalists and editors and to share ideas and experience, as well as field trips and discussions to provide outstanding material to report on.

For many it will be the first conference after so many virtual and online meetings, and we are together embracing a new normal; ensuring the travel is worthwhile. Successful conferences now and in the future need to provide first-hand views of a unique facility, which no photograph or video can do justice to; networking events and opportunities as well as the chance encounters that only happen in real life.
