Conference of Science in Service of Peace and Development


After the international conference of Science 1999, the United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the International Council of Sciences, announced 10 November (Iranian calendar, 19 or 20 Aaban) as the “WORLD SCIENCE DAY FOR PEACE AND DEVELOPMENT”. The importance of using science in the process of countries development and lowering the gap between science and society are among the goals of this plan. In this respect, efforts have been made to draw people’s attention towards the importance of role of science in the progress of the world. Another goal of the World Science Day is to enable people to benefit from this day according to their specialization and skills. The World Science Day for Peace and Development provides scientific institutes, governments, civil societies and scientists to discuss and exchange views on peace and development, as the most essential social concepts. In a new approach of UNESO, peace does not mean the absence of war among governments, but, it could mean the conditions of a constructive Natioanl management, settlement of disputes and making coordination in the inter-entities sectors of a society and obviously, societies that benefit from scientific methods could have a common perspective to look at the world and instead of focusing on differences, emphasize on the shared and common points to give the peace a chance to flourish.
