The International Science Council at the #WCSJ2019

The International Science Council (ISC) is a non-governmental organization with a unique global membership that brings together 40 international scientific Unions and Associations and over 140 national and regional scientific organizations including Academies and Research Councils.

We’re excited to be at the World Conference on Science Journalism for the first time and are inviting delegates to enter our competition to win a year’s subscription to the New Yorker and Anthropocene Magazine.



The International Science Council at the #WCSJ2019

The International Science Council is the global voice for science

It was created in 2018 as the result of a merger between the International Council for Science (ICSU) and the International Social Science Council (ISSC) and is the only international non-governmental organization bringing together the natural and social sciences and the largest global science organization of its type.

The vision of the Council is to advance science as a global public good. Scientific knowledge, data and expertise must be universally accessible and its benefits universally shared – that’s why science journalism is so critical to empowering open societies, so citizens can be engaged in and make informed decisions about their future. Read more about the ISC here.

We’re giving away a year’s subscription to the New Yorker plus a subscription to Anthropocene – Future Earth’s magazine that “explores how we can create a sustainable human age we actually want to live in”. Click here for your chance to win.

Anthropocene works with world-class writers to scout innovative and often counter intuitive solutions to environmental and development challenges and craft in-depth stories about the people and technologies behind those innovations.

Currently edited by Kathryn Kohm, Anthropocene won the 2018 bronze medal for specialty magazines from The Council for Advancement and Support of Education.
