Local to Global Solutions for Sustainability

Building upon UNESCO’s theme of “Science for Peace and Development,” our goal is to create new ways for our institutions to proactively address global sustainability while reaching increasingly diverse audiences. International Science Center and Science Museum Day (ISCSMD)  demonstrates the engagement and impact of the science center and science museum field, and outcomes from the day’s events and discussions will be presented at the Science Centre World Summit 2017 in Tokyo.

SDGs in Science Centers and Science Museums

See how science centers and science museums around the world are addressing the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, and share your center’s story.

UNESCO High-Level Forum

On November 10, 2016, experts from inside and outside the science center and science museum field met in Paris at UNESCO Headquarters to discuss best practices and recommendations to address the UN SDGs in the future. Learn more.
