Lecturers without borders (diversity lecture by Eugenia Covernton and Marina Molla)

This lecture is jointly held by Eugenia Covernton, LeWiBo, and Marina Molla, teacher, and is organised by the Europlanet Diversity Committee. It will be an opportunity to hear the speakers' stories about the initiative ‘Lecturers without borders’ and their experiences with bringing these lectures and EPSC to schools to make planetary sciences more accessible to the wider society.

Description extracted from https://lewibo.org/:

"Lecturers without borders is a project launched by a group of international scientists. The headquarters of the project are in Paris and Munich. The creators of the project are scientists and university and school professors who use their travel opportunities (when attending scientific conferences, going on holidays, etc.) to give free outreach-lectures in local schools and universities. The main target is to inspire the high school students and to raise their motivation in learning science. As of today the project has already over 190 lecturers and can approach up to 8 000 schools in Europe and Asia."
