When and what is World Science Day?

World Science Day is an annual event which takes place on the 10th November.  It encourages discussions and is a way of engaging the wider public in debates surrounding the world of Scientific issues and developments , like artificial intelligence and renewable energy.  It also underpins the role scientists play in broadening our understanding of the planet and making our communities more sustainable.

When was World Science day founded?

People and institutions around the world are encouraged to organise an event on World Science Day, including government officials, students, the media and school pupils.  World science Day was started in 2001 by UNESCO - the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization.  Director-General of UNESCO, Audrey Azoulay, had this to say about World Science Day:

“Open Science seeks to make scientific information, knowledge and data available to all. By increasing access to information, it aims to give all scientists, innovators, engineers, entrepreneurs and citizens the opportunity to observe, contribute and create knowledge in the fields of science, technology and innovation. Not only does this approach boost transparency and accountability, it helps create equal opportunities for all, by encouraging engagement with scientific culture”.
