Why support us?
In Malaysia, science-related topics often take a backseat in the local mainstream media platform. It’s time to put science at the forefront by helping us to help our scientific community to thrive, including increasing the numbers of science journalists and science communicators in this country.
How does SMC operate?
As a non-profit and independent organisation, Science Media Centre Malaysia relies on the support and funds which comes from a wide variety of organisations and individuals with an interest in accurate reporting of science in the media.
We are sustained through consultancy work, which includes customised services such as planning and conducting media briefings and webinars, science communications workshops, social media campaigns and content creation on science-related topics. All profits are directed back into SMC to grow the organisation.
Your support will:
- grow the science journalists/ communicators community in Malaysia
- help scientists communicate their research effectively through SMC’s science communications workshops and platforms
- help SMC to support journalists in promoting accurate and evidence-based reporting especially on complex or controversial science issues in the media
- support the creation of a science journalism database and fellowship group
- increase the visibility of home-grown research and technologies through SMC’s platform
- facilitate a deeper engagement between media and scientists through SMC’s programmes, networks and international collaborations
- increase efforts towards improving science communication in Malaysia and ultimately make science mainstream and accessible to the public

Masyarakat etnik yang mendiami kawasan terpencil sangat bergantung kepada sumber alam. Jika hasil tuaian padi musnah, tiada pasar yang berdekatan untuk membeli beras. Justeru, mereka merupakan ‘barisan hadapan’ yang merasakan perubahan iklim dan akibat buruknya.
