The outright repudiation of scientific facts is a longstanding, global phenomenon, and negative consequences are vast for science, public health, global conservation, and beyond.

There is no single way to categorize science deniers, complicating efforts to overcome science denial. It arises in all strata of education and political ideology, with diverse motivations. Having increased scientific knowledge is only marginally protective against science denial, and at times can lead to increased polarization.

In response to this complex and pressing global challenge, this event will gather the world's leading communications, political science, psychology, and behavior researchers with historians, public health officials, and science outreach experts for a 1-day symposium to delve into the history and cultural motivations of, challenges presented by, and future solutions to science denial.
