World Science Day for Peace and Development: celebration in Italy
Established by UNESCO in 2001, World Science Day for Peace and Development is celebrated globally on 10 November each year. The motivation behind World Science Day is twofold: one is to create an opportunity to strengthen the relationship between science and society and secondly to ensure that citizens are kept abreast about the developments in science, while highlighting and promoting the role scientists play in broadening our understanding of the sciences. This year is no exception.
Within the UN International Year of Water Cooperation 2013 declared by the UN General Assembly (Resolution A/RES/65/154), UNESCO has dedicated its World Science Day to underline the importance of water in all of its various aspects.
