In June 2022 at the IYSE Assembly in Paris, the IYSE and the IYBSSD signed a historical “Strategic Alliance Agreement Between International Years.” In this document, the IYSE and the IYBSSD agreed to undertake to “Collaborate with the International Science Council (ISC), in hopes that the ISC can help the IYSE and the IYBSSD with the continuity process of this Strategic Alliance, and ultimately garner as much support as possible to make a global impact.”
Therefore, the IYSE, the IYBSSD, and the ISC will join together to hold an international digital event to commemorate the International Week of Science and Peace (IWOSP), supported by a 1988 United Nations General Assembly Resolution on Science and Peace. The global event will focus on the topic of peace and reconciliation.
Join our Webinar, which will focus on Science Engagement, Peace, and Reconciliation. An opening statement will be made by a high-level Ukrainian official, as the Permanent Mission of Ukraine to UNESCO is the Permanent Delegation working to bring the IYSE into UNESCO for endorsement in 2023 as an official UN International Year. Four Science Engagement practitioners will present case studies about their work in Peace and Reconciliation. For more details regarding the agenda and speakers see below.
Stay tuned and mark your calendars for 2:00 pm Europe/Berlin Time on Tuesday, November 15th. Also, be sure to follow us on Twitter, LinkedIn and sign up for our newsletter!
