Associated Meetings

Co-organizers of the World Conference on Science (WCS), UNESCO and the International Council for Science (ICSU) invited their partners to associate their own congresses and meetings with the WCS, and so widen  the process of reflection involving scientists, governments and other members of society. In this way, it has been possible to involve a wider range of individuals in the WCS process.

In all, 69 meetings associated with the World Conference on Science  were organized around the world between June 1995 and June 1999. They played a very important role in elaborating proposals and recommendations for participants of the WCS itself. In particular, the organizers of each meeting were invited to submit a report summarizing their discussions and making recommendations for consideration in the final drafting of the Declaration on Science and the Use of Scientific Knowledge and of the blueprint for follow-up action to the WCS, the Science Agenda - Framework for Action. The organizers of some 54 meetings took up the invitation.

The reports and recommendations of these associated meeting are available here in the language(s) in which they were originally submitted by the organizers of the respective events. Please contact the organizers of each meeting directly at the e-mail address given for any further information.
