Flavia Schlegel, Assistant Director-General of UNESCO
Everyone has a right to participate in and benefit from science, and science centres and museums play an important role in making science accessible to all. They share UNESCO’s objectives of linking science more closely with society, sharing scientific knowledge and fostering the engagement of young people in science, technology and innovation. In the year that the world celebrates the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, UNESCO puts the Human Rights at the heart of the World Science Day for Peace and Development and reaffirms its support to science centres, science museums and regional networks partnering with the Association for Science and Technology Centers.
