World Science Day for Peace and Development


The rationale of celebrating a World Science Day for Peace and Development has its roots in the importance of the role of science and scientists for sustainable societies and in the need to inform and involve citizens in science. In this sense, a World Science Day for Peace and Development offers an opportunity to show the general public the relevance of science in their lives and to engage them in discussions. Such a venture also brings a unique perspective to the global search for peace and development.

 

The purpose of the Day is to:

Strengthen public awareness of the role of science for peaceful and sustainable societies;

Promote national and international solidarity for shared science between countries;

Renew national and international commitment for the use of science for the benefit of societies;

Draw attention to the challenges faced by science in raising support for the scientific endeavour.

 

The year 2021 marks 20th edition of World Science Day for Peace and Development. With climate change becoming a serious threat to the lives of billions of people and the planet, this year’s celebration will highlight the importance of “Building Climate-Ready Communities”. The objective is to bring science closer to society by highlighting some key scientific aspects and possible solutions provided by science, technology and innovation to some of the major global challenges society is facing today.
