World Science Day for Peace and Development is observed on 10th November every year.  It is commonly known as World Science Day. This day stresses on the importance of science and how it is important in our daily lives. The main purpose of the day is to spread awareness about  the latest developments in the field of science, with a view to bridging the gap between science and society.

 

The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in association with the government, people and institutions promotes this year-on-year. It is also celebrated by many research organisations, museums, institutions and government organisations with a theme.

 

The theme for World Science Day for Peace and Development 2014 is, Quality Science Education: ensuring a sustainable future for all. The theme for the year 2013 was - Science for Water Cooperation: Sharing Data, Knowledge and Innovations, which highlighted the key role played by Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) in addressing global water challenges.

 

World Science Day for Peace and Development is considered to be a global observance day and not a public holiday. It was during the World Conference on Science in Budapest in 1999, that UNESCO felt the need to come up with a day that bridges the gap between science and society. The proclamation of World Science Day was done in 2001 by UNESCO and it was first celebrated on 10 November 2002.

 

World Science Day for Peace and Development is a great initiative by UNESCO as it not only highlights the contributions but also makes people aware of the developments in the field of science. After all, we all know that science has a major role in the development and promoting peace in the world.

 

In short, World Science Day for Peace and Development encourages us to work together and harness the actual power of science towards the development of society.
