It is essential to include basic science education from the beginning of the educational process, making investment in scientific education a priority. This approach decisively contributes to encouraging young people to take up careers in science and technology. Nevertheless, the most important consequence is the contribution it makes to improving education, which is a subject that has mobilized several segments of society because of its importance.

UNESCO acts as a catalyst for these themes and offers the country support to stablilize policies,as well as promoting technical cooperation at national and international levels in the field of natural sciences. Scientific education and development of sustainable practices are themes of great interest to UNESCO, taking into consideration the continuous support offered to Science and Technology policy in Brazil.
