Join scientists for a 24-hour online event around the globe
How are scientists paving the way to the collective progress towards sustainable development? How could they do better, and more? International scientific unions, research organizations, science academies, learned societies, and scientific networks involved in the International Year of Basic Sciences for Sustainable Development in 2022 and 2023 are already working on answering these questions.
On the occasion of World Environment Day on 5 June 2023, we are offering science enthusiasts a 24-hour live online broadcast, to share how scientific results, as well as ways of doing science, already contribute to building a better world for all.
How can we reduce pollution from plastics and electronic waste? What will be the effects of climate change on future plant-herbivore interactions or on extreme weather events? How does biophysics improve human health and agriculture? Why must we develop a more open approach to science? How are big science facilities already transitioning to sustainability? What can basic physics bring to environment research or cultural heritage preservation? What are the most efficient actions to reduce the gender gap in science?
Join scientists from Korea to Colombia, from Burkina Faso to Sri Lanka, from South Africa to Canada, from diverse experiences and backgrounds, who will discuss these questions and many more.
Most talks and discussions will be in English. Some will be in Spanish, Arabic, Portuguese, and other languages.
