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.
