10 November – World Science Day for Peace and Development

Celebrated every 10 November, World Science Day for Peace and Development highlights the important role of science in society and the need to engage the wider public in debates on emerging scientific issues. It also underlines the importance and relevance of science in our daily lives and underscores the role scientists play in broadening our understanding of the remarkable, fragile planet we call home and in making our societies more sustainable.

By linking science more closely with society, World Science Day for Peace and Development aims to ensure that citizens are kept informed of developments in science.

In 2021, World Science Day for Peace and Development highlights the importance of “building climate-ready communities”.
