A World of Science celebrates its first decade

This quarterly newsletter provides information on the work of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in the field of natural sciences.

Between 2002 and 2011, A World of Science was distributed regularly in English, French, Russian and Spanish in 11,000 copies to readers in 192 countries. The newsletter was disseminated to all governments and parliaments and to numerous scientific bodies, intergovernmental organizations, non-governmental organizations, youth groups, universities and schools, many of which subscribed to the free print edition. Eight issues were also produced in Arabic in 2008-2010. 

In 2012, A World of Science ceased to exist in print. Individuals and institutions may still register for a free e-subscription to the English, French and Spanish editions (online version). To subscribe, simply enter your e-mail address in the box you will find in the right-hand column of this page. 

The current issue of A World of Science and all previous issues dating back to October 2002 in various languages may be consulted freely. 

To mark the 10th anniversary of A World of Science, please find a list of the main stories over the past ten years, arranged by category (biosphere reserves, freshwater, climate change, research for health, etc) and indicating the languages in which they are available online. 

Media are entitled to reproduce any articles they wish in their periodicals, providing that A World of Science, UNESCO and the author(s) are credited.
