10 November - World Science Day for peace and Development

World Science Day for Peace and Development (WSDPD)
Established by UNESCO in 2001, the WSDPD is celebrated on 10 November each year. The Day is an occasion to remind the UNESCO's mandate and commitment on science.
The WSDPD's objectives are:
  • To strengthen public awareness on the role of science for peaceful and sustainable societies
  • To promote national and international solidarity for a shared science between countries
  • To renew national and international commitment for the use of science for the benefit of societies
  • To draw attention to the challenges faced by science and raise support for the scientific endeavor
The theme of 2011's World Science Day for Peace and Development is "Towards Green Societies: Equity, Inclusiveness, Participation."

Green societies must be knowledge societies, which harness science to identify emerging challenges and to respond in innovative ways. For this, science must be mobilized and it must be inclusive.
