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. Science for Democracy, the Luca Coscioni Association and Eumans promoted “The Human Right to Science. Discuss it. Explore it. Enjoy it” a three-hour webinar with scientists, jurists, decision-makers, experts and human rights activists to underline the importance and relevance of science in our daily lives.
By linking science more closely with society, the activities organized on 10 November aim to ensure that citizens are kept informed of developments in science and to underscore the role scientists play in broadening our understanding of the remarkable, fragile planet we call home and in making our societies more sustainable.
