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

wonder what the deadline on this project is?

so many things out in the world

just waiting to be discovered

one of my favorite things to do is to stumble upon them

share them with my camera and my words

 

“anything that excites me for any reason, i will photograph;

not searching for unusual subject matter, but making the commonplace unusual.”

people, animals, kindness, dancing, laughing, and tacos

has become a part of a new kid congress

a group springing from the legacy of

 ‘kid president’

(who has now grown into a young man)

with a mission to show

that kids can help to change the world for the better

thank you to kid president for passing the torch
