Science communication can be a lonely
If you’re in or near London, UK, you can join us on one of our monthly coworking mornings where people working in a range of science communication projects get productive by working in the presence of others. If you’re somewhere else, scroll down to find some tips for setting up your own coworking events.

Get together with your local community
If you want to arrange a similar event in your own community, here’s a checklist to get started:
- Find a venue that can host your group, ideally with wifi, tables, coffee – but not too loud. Check for other factors, such as accessibility and the venue’s attitude to having people work there.
- Pick a date, and make sure there is availability at the venue. (Maybe make a tentative reservation to hold the spot, if it’s popular.)
- Invite people! Post to local mailing lists, social media, etc.
- Once you have a sense of approximately how many people will be there, secure your reservation.
- On the day: You’ll mostly be working quietly, but hold each other accountable by doing a round of quick introductions to share what you’re working on, and another round at the end to ask about the progress everyone made.
- Have fun, and be productive!
