Leap seconds dialogue

Webinar recording featuring Paul Broadbent from the National Measurement Office (NMO) discussing the lessons learnt from the NMO's public dialogue on Leap Seconds; a project to determine the importance to the public of a link between time and the earth’s movement. The dialogue was commissioned by the NMO to inform a ministerial decision on how the UK should vote on an issue which is internationally controversial.

The webinar covers what value the NMO gained from commissioning the public dialogue, how it will help to create a better policy and what, if any, surprises the dialogue uncovered.

Please see below, a recording of the webinar and slides from the session.
