As part of the commemoration of Darwin's work, UNESCO is sponsoring Darwin 200 through a series of symposia with the International Union of Biological Sciences. The aim of Darwin 200 will be to celebrate the impact of Darwin’s ideas on current scientific knowledge with a series of scientific symposia and satellite meetings over 5 continents.

In Europe, under the Auspices of UNESCO, sponsored by the Istituto Veneto di Scienze Lettere ed Arti, International Union of Biological Sciences (IUBS), International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (IUBMB).
