Why is science communication important to you personally?

Our digital age has seen huge growth in the flow of information. But such growth often comes with a cost. If the quality of the information is poor, the public suffers being misinformed. I believe that communicating science with quality and integrity is fundamental to ensuring a well-informed public and allowing a peaceful and prosperous world.
