Women in Science and Non-traditional settings
Since its establishment in 2001, UNESCO’s World Science Day for Peace and Development is celebrated worldwide each year on 10 November. This Day is an occasion to recall UNESCO's and its Member States’ commitment to science. UNESCO has made significant progress in also promoting gender equality (a global priority for the Organization) and is strongly oriented towards empowering girls and women in the creation of scientific knowledge.
Within Albania’s centennial celebrations, the UNESCO World Science Day will place the spotlight on the important contributions Albanian women make to science. UNESCO is organizing a Conference “Albanian Women in Science and non-traditional settings” in the framework of the Albania-United Nations Programme of Cooperation 2012-2016. Important Albanian women scientists and international guests will share their professional and educational experiences and answer questions from the public.
