Our mission is to investigate, create, and fund scalable initiatives and programs, providing new paths to science literacy.
We envision a world in which understanding science plays a guiding role in shaping a safe, satisfying, and opportunity-filled future for everyone.
Science belongs to everyone. They should be able seek its benefits equally without falling prey to misinformation, disinformation, and conspiracy theories.
SLF aims to be:
- A connector, bringing together siloed researchers, journalists, communicators, educators, and policymakers through events, resources, and strategic partnerships so that these groups can work together and learn from one another;
- An incubator, funding seed-level and founder-level projects, providing grants, and forging partnerships that promote creative approaches to science communication, preferably projects at the community level;
- A creator, helping people confront and navigate the 21st century information crisis through smart news and reflections and facilitated discussions to help shape the future of science coverage.
