#KnowtheScience Social Media Campaign

March 29, 2017

SEARCA Biotechnology Information Center launched its social media campaign #KnowTheScience. The campaign aims to encourage people to be discerning about biotech crops and the technology by understanding the science behind them through major social media networks namely: Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, and Instagram. By highlighting this message, consumers are also being urged to be more critical about what is "natural" and "organic." The campaign will use the scientific and evidence-based leverage of biotech crops through studies published on its safety, and actual and potential benefits. Through its posts, the campaign will refute the claims made by anti-GMO groups. It will also highlight the personal stories and experiences of people who adopt (farmers, consumers) or develop (scientists) biotech crops.

Be part of the campaign by liking/following the social media pages and sharing the posts:
