WHAT IS THE WORLD SCIENCE DAY FOR PEACE AND DEVELOPMENT ?

Established by UNESCO in 2001, the WSDPD is celebrated on 10 November each year. The Day is an occasion to remind the UNESCO's mandate and commitment on science.

The WSDPD's objectives are:

  • To strengthen public awareness on the role of science for peaceful and sustainable societies
  • To promote national and international solidarity for a shared science between countries
  • To renew national and international commitment for the use of science for the benefit of societies
  • To draw attention to the challenges faced by science and raise support for the scientific endeavor
