Social media interest in Academy continues to grow

March 19, 2018

The Academy’s social media presence continues to grow from strength to strength. There are now more than 237,000 people who have liked our Facebook page, and who receive regular posts from the Academy.

We recently produced a video on behalf of 22 science academies and societies across the Commonwealth. The video promotes the release of a climate consensus statement calling on governments across the Commonwealth to use the best available science to take action on climate change.

The video has now been viewed 156,000 times on Facebook, 44,000 times on Instagram and 11,200 times on Twitter, many from international locations.

In addition to our videos communicating science, we are planning more videos to support Academy activities, including the Canberra public speaker series The science of us and our honorific awards.
