World Science Day for Peace and Development

Celebrated every November 10th, 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.

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.

In 2020, the Day will be devoted to the theme of Science for and with society.

“ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge:

it is those who know little, and not those who know much,

who so positively assert that this or that problem will never be solved by science.”

-charles darwin

World Food Day is celebrated every year around the world on October 16th in honor of the date of the founding of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations in 1945. The day is celebrated widely by many other organizations concerned with food security, including the World Food Programme and the International Fund for Agricultural Development

Some 795 million people in the world do not have enough food to lead a healthy active life. That’s about one in nine people on earth.

“we know that a peaceful world cannot long exist,

one-third rich and two-thirds hungry.”

-jimmy carter
