Get your GRPs or KANs work featured in BBC Storyworks

Event Date: 
Friday, March 19, 2021 to Friday, April 30, 2021

The ISC and BBC are partnering to produce a new series exploring the role of science in solving humankind’s most complex challenges. Future Earth is an affiliate body of the ISD and through this connection, your GRP and KAN work can be considered for this opportunity.  The GRPs and KANs have a critical role to play in developing the storylines for the series by identifying impactful, solutions-oriented science that will allow the BBC StoryWorks team to create compelling content that activates emotions, whilst delivering the key messages that advance public understanding of scientific research and practice, fortifying levels of public trust in science.  

Stories will showcase evidence-based actions towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) or demonstrate how lessons learned from the pandemic can be applied to other critical global challenges.

The ambition behind these series is to:

  • Showcase the impact science is having on the achievement of the SDGs
  • Highlight the ways in which lessons from science’s high profile during the pandemic can be applied to other major global challenges
  • Maximize the visibility of scientists' sometimes inaccessible work and the range of contexts scientists work in
  • Stimulate support for scientific research on critical global issues

To express interest in participating in the series, please submit your stories via or contact the BBC StoryWorks team directly through the Research Manager

The call for stories will close on 30 April 2021 with a view to filming and content creation during the months of May to September.

Full information will be published on ISC’s website shortly. In the meantime, you can contact: .
