Ask for Evidence Ambassador

Sense about Science

Sense about Science is recruiting 20 new volunteer ambassadors around the UK to lead the Ask for Evidence campaign. Ask for Evidence is a public campaign that holds powerful figures, companies, organisations and public bodies to account. It helps people challenge claims in news stories, adverts and policies and ask for the evidence behind them. Becoming an ambassador is an opportunity to encourage others in your region to Ask for Evidence by giving talks, running activities and talking with community groups about issues that matter to them. Our ten existing ambassadors have already reached over 50,000 people and over 1500 people have asked for evidence on issues ranging from health supplements, speed limits, contraception and education to alcohol, IVF and pollution. Now we are aiming to build on this success with ambassadors from across the country, and all walks of life, highlighting why evidence matters to them. Successful applicants will receive expert training in public speaking, insights into campaigning and communications and opportunities to organise and give talks: 3 - 6 a year. You will work closely with the friendly Sense about Science team to arrange events, give talks and collect feedback.
