Selva Ozelli's World Science Day Art Shows
Celebrated every 10 November, 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.
With climate change becoming a serious threat to the lives of billions of people and the planet, in 2021 the celebration will highlight the importance of “building climate-ready communities”.
A freely available guide authored by Henry McGhie, the founder of Curating Tomorrow and Co-Founder of Museums for Climate Action, for galleries, libraries, archives and museums (‘GLAM) was published by Curating Tomorrow at the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) (Nov 1-12). This guide is empowering everyone who works in galleries, libraries, archives and museums to connect their work to the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals, and to use them as they are intended to be used.
Henry McGhie is presenting this guide at the 48th The International Committee for Museums and Collections of Science and Technology (CIMUSET) Conference (Nov 7-11) to address our planet's environmental concerns and how Science and Technology museums can approach and present this important issue via education and exhibitions.
