To increase and strengthen people’s participation in science communication movement and to strengthen the movement itself, Tripura State Council for Science & Technology (A constituent organization of the Department of Science, Technology & Environment, Government of Tripura, India) nucleated ‘Science Forum’ in all the districts of Tripura. Every Science Forum is run by volunteers. Science teachers, activists, enthusiasts use this platform to propagate the message of science and eradicate superstition from the society. Tripura State Council for Science & Technology provides necessary infrastructure and minimum fund required to conduct different activities throughout the year. Workshops are organized regularly on various topics of scientific interest to train the activists. With this unique effort of the government, science communication movement in the state has made a big leap. Now it is a movement by the people for the people.
