Resources: World Science Day for Peace & Development

Established by UNESCO in 2002, the World Science Day for Peace and Development is an annual event that takes place on the 10th of November. Inspire your class & celebrate with the ideas, resources, projects & activities below.

2019 Theme: “Open science, leaving no one behind”

“The aim of the day is to show how science is relevant to our daily lives and highlight the contribution that science makes to peaceful and sustainable societies. If we are to tackle the major challenges facing the world – such as the impacts of climate change, extreme poverty and diseases like Ebola, HIV/AIDS and malaria – scientists from different countries need to cooperate across borders. Scientists’ perspective should also be heard by decision-makers and incorporated into global policy-making.” – UNESCO
