This session aims to be a forum aiming to invite individuals and organisations around the world, specially those from Latin America and the Caribbean countries, to network in science communication, through the RedPOP, the Network for the Popularization of Science and Technology for Latin America and the Caribbean. RedPOP was created in 1990, in Rio de Janeiro, in the context of the Programme for Science, Technology and Society of UNESCO. Stakeholders from the region will present the results of some joint projects developed within the scope of RedPOP, as well as the opportunities generated by this network. Future RED-POP projects and opportunities will also be discussed. The session will be run in Spanish, for being more inclusive (considering that it may be less of interest of people out of the region). Many stakeholders from Latin America have confirmed participation in the session, among them (in alphabetical order): Alejandra León-Castellá, Fundación Cientec, Costa Rica, Annie Maria Umaña Campos, Universidad Estatal a Distancia de Costa Rica, César Carrillo-Trueba, Revista Ciencias/ Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, Claudia Aguirre, Parque Explora, Colombia, Elaine Reynoso, Sociedad Mexicana para la Divulgación de la Ciencia y la Técnica Somedicyt) y Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, México, Graciela Merino, Prosecretaria de Asuntos Academicos de la Universidad Nacional de la Plata y directora del Programa Mundo Nuevo de la misma universidad, Jorge Padilla Gonzalez, Sociedad Mexicana para la Divulgación de la Ciencia y la Técnica (Somedicyt), México, Nelsa María Bottinelli Cappuccio, Asociación Civil “Ciencia  Viva”, Uruguay, Julia Tagueña, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México and CONACyT (Mexico), Luisa Massarani, RedPOP and Museu da Vida/Casa de Oswaldo Cruz/Fiocruz, Brazil, Luz Lindegaard, Museo Interactivo Mirador, Chile, Marisa Talavera, Secretaria Nacional de Ciencia, Tecnología e Innovación (SENACYT), Panamá, Martha Cambre, Lato, Espacio Ciencia / LATU, Uruguay, among others.
