Co-founder of Ireland's Edge, Nuala O'Connor says: `This live event will frame a discussion around how we know what we know, how we are informed and by whom, and how we make judgements based on what we know or believe we know’.
She adds: ‘Growing levels of distrust of science and of government present profound challenges to public health programmes and policy makers. How do non-experts process the tidal wave of sometimes conflicting information in order to make crucial life decisions?’
