bridging the science/non-science gap

"more direct communication will help improve relations between the two parties, allowing a more efficient implementation of scientific knowledge in society. The time and effort put forth by this generation could be the needed catalyst for change within society."

I like the idea, and the implied call for action by your colleagues/classmates. Can you persuade them to invest time in developing the needed communication skills?  Will they get adequate help along these lines in their undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral training?  Maybe a initiiative of this kind requires broader commitment/buy in?
