In Conversation with Claire Klingenberg — President, European Council of Skeptic Organizations
Interview for Humanist Voices
Scott Douglas Jacobsen: Claire, what are the issues for young skeptics?
Claire Klingenberg: The issue for young skeptics is to find their passion in the movement and to find what they want to focus their skepticism on, or their skeptical work in.
It is to fight against the stereotypes because they are young and they might feel as if their opinions may not matter as much. They should realize that they need to get experience and get knowledge. Young skeptics should be given a platform to express where the focus is needed.
I think the skeptical movement has gotten much better at accepting younger voices and promoting younger voices, which attracts younger people to join.
