The sixteenth edition of the Yearbook of Science, Technology and Society is characterized by attention to the issue of climate change. For the first time, the Yearbook 2020 is enriched by an insert of infographics that summarize the most relevant data.
In the first part, in addition to taking into account the most recent trends in the relationship between science, technology and public opinion in Italy, we analyze the perception and actions of Italians to combat climate change, the attention of new generations to environmental issues, the relationship between citizens and science in a European country like Sweden.
The second part develops according to the now consolidated thematic organization: the first section is dedicated to data on research policies; the second section is located on the orientations of public opinion towards the so-called fake news, vaccinations and privacy on the web; finally, the third section offers a collection of the main scientific events that occurred in 2019, the volumes published on the relationship between science and society in the last year and a glossary of the terms used.
The 2020 Yearbook was presented, as part of the “BiblioTour” event, on Wednesday 12 February 2020, at 5.45 pm, at the Biblioteca Civica Centrale of Torino.
