University of Petroleum & Energy Studies (UPES) in collaboration with Uttarakhand State Council and NSERB and Govt. of India Science & Technology department organised a seminar in Dehradu to build a close communication between science and media.

The session commenced with the speech given by Devendra Mewari, an eminent science writer from New Delhi followed by the speech delivered by five lead speakers, editors of various newspapers and also experts who gave commendable views on howthis gap of science and social media can be bridged.
