Tomorrow, on Saturday, November 10th, we will celebrate World Science Day for Peace and Development. According to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), this is a day which highlights the importance of science in and for society, as well as establishing that science, peace and development and permanently interlinked.
"By linking science more closely with society, World Science Day for Peace and Development aims to ensure that citizens are kept informed of developments in science. It also underscores the role scientists play in broadening our understanding of the remarkable, fragile planet we call home and in making our societies more sustainable."
The theme for 2018 is "Science, a Human Right," which celebrates the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and of the Recommendation on Science and Scientific Researchers. According to Audrey Azoulay, Director-General of UNESCO, "This World Science Day for Peace and Development 2018, UNESCO urges everyone to exercise their human right to participate in and benefit from science."
