A city walking tour – Researchers’ Night Karlstad 2011.

Inviting a researcher to talk about science or research in relation to sights seen on a walking tour is a good way of showing how research and society are linked. The choice of theme, route and information provided should be carefully planned.

Target group: Broad, flexible.

Preparations: Plan the route for the city walking tour and the information to be provided. Decide on the appropriate size for a group and if and how people should register in advance. Spread information about how to register. Market the activity.

Challenges: Determining the appropriate length and type of walking tour. Deciding on and preparing information that will keep the participants interested.

Benefits: Good activity to show the connections between research/science and society.
