About the IYSE

The aim of the IYSE is to proclaim 2027 as an official United Nations International Year and to put the important topic of “Science Engagement” on the global agenda. We hope to create the necessary momentum for dialogue and participation between science and society, to promote scientific literacy, and to engage more voices in the scientific process through the inclusion of practitioners, scientists, policymakers and diverse stakeholders.

What is Science Engagement

Falling Walls aims to expand the recognition of Science Engagement worldwide. We seek participatory formats of all levels: from co-productive research and public panels to arts-driven or entertaining approaches – the common ground is the inclusion of and impact on all sides involved. We define Science Engagement as activities, events, or interactions bridging the gap between science and society to generate mutual learning and mutual benefits across the spectrum of public engagement in science.
