Welcome and congrats! to our 59th Member Association, the Croatian Association of Science Writers (CASW)

The goal of the CASW is to “help science journalists do their work well, and stand up for them where appropriate, especially given recent pressure and attacks on science journalists here from public officials. To help new science journalists get into the profession and learn new skills. To network with colleagues abroad, and engage in two-way learning and exchanges.”

The CASW is part of the Croatian Journalists Association, which in turn, is a member of International Federation of Journalists.
