World Science Day - 10 November

World Science Day for Peace and Development is held every year on 10 November. Apart from recognising the importance of scientific research and endeavour, it aims to connect with the wider community and highlight the relevance of science to everyday living.

This year's theme is 'Science for Global Understanding'.

 An important contribution that UNESCO and science & technology centres can bring to global understanding is the unique opportunity to combine global sustainability and local action. The dialogue among science, policy, and everyday lives should be constant and multidirectional. Global sustainability can learn so much from best practices and success stories.
