World Science Day for Peace and Development
We invite everyone to celebrate science on this Day. It's success of the World Science Day for Peace and Development depends on the active involvement of many partners, including civil society, scientific and research institutions, professional associations, the media, science teachers and schools.
Below are a few examples of events organized around the world.
Albanian Ministry of Education, Sports and Youth and UNESCO Regional Bureau for Science and Culture in Europe.
On 9-10 November, in cooperation with the Albanian Ministry of Education, Sports and Youth, our Office will be conducting a 2-day training for teachers of science, both primary and secondary schools, on how to apply Inquiry-learning and Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) to better empower both girls and boys in the science classroom. Many of the skills and ideas presented are coming from the lessons learned from the Ark of Inquiry project, an EU-funded teacher training project our office has been implementing in Europe on IBSE. Around 40 teachers will be present for the training, which will involve hands-on learning activities. On the second day of the training, World Science Day, we foresee to invite members of the Albanian Women in Science network to join in as invaluable resources for teachers, both to potentially assist with inquiry activities in the classroom, in their fields of expertise and also to serve as new role models for girls and boys alike in the sciences.
