UNESCO celebrates World Science Day for Peace and Development with theme 'Science for Global Understanding'
World Science Day for Peace and Development was observed by UNESCO with the theme of 'Science for Global Understanding' on November 10 to highlight the importance of science in and for society and emphasis that science, peace and development are interlinked.

According to UNESCO, the observance meant to underscore the 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.

"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. It also underscores the role scientists play in broadening our understanding of the remarkable, fragile planet we call home and in making our societies more sustainable," writes UNESCO on its website.

Flavia Schlegel, Assistant Director-General for the Natural Sciences, UNESCO said, "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."
