World Science Day at the Service of Peace and Development 2017

November 10th is World Science Day for Peace and Development. Celebrated annually and promoted by UNESCO, it aims to highlight the role of science in building a better world.

This year "Science for Global Understanding" was the theme chosen for reflection. This motto integrates UNESCO's approach to developing scientific cooperation between and within societies, combining sustainability on a global scale, with work and knowledge on a local scale.

UNESCO Director-General Irina Bokova issued a message on the occasion of this day, available here.
