Building Scientific Communities

Popularization of science is an endeavor to image scientific concepts in such a way that every
person (especially non-scientists) can understand the fundamental objectives and have an
idea of what science in essence is. Although many Arab scientists are renowned and their
fingerprints are so clear in research and development worldwide, unfortunately a great
number of the public in Arab States cannot tell exactly what 'science' is all about.  In fact, the
gap between scientists and the Arab Societies seems to be huge.
The question asked here is whether it is possible to popularize science in Arab States and, if
so, to what extent?!
Yes, it is possible to popularize science to a great extent, by means of raising awareness of
how it touches our everyday life.  How..,

First Annual Multi-stakeholder Forum on Science, Technology and
Innovation for the Sustainable Development Goals (STI Forum).

As requested by the General Assembly resolution 70/1 on 2030 Agenda for Sustainable
Development, the President of ECOSOC will convene the meetings of the STI forum
once a year to discuss science, technology and innovation cooperation around thematic
areas for the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals. The General
Assembly also decided that the meetings of the forum will be co-chaired by two Member
States and will result in a summary of discussions elaborated by the two co-Chairs.

Economic and Social Council
Established by UNESCO in 2001, World Science Day for
Peace and Development is celebrated worldwide on 10
November each year. It offers an opportunity to demonstrate to
the wider public why science is relevant to their daily lives and
to engage them in debate on related issues.
There are fewer grounds today than in the past to deplore a North–South divide in
research and innovation. This is one of the key findings of the UNESCO Science Report:
towards 2030 launched on 10 November 2015.

For two decades now, the UNESCO Science Report series has been mapping science,
technology and innovation (STI) around the world on a regular basis. Since STI do not
evolve in a vacuum, this latest edition summarizes the evolution since 2010 against the
backdrop of socio-economic, geopolitical and environmental trends that have helped to
shape contemporary STI policy and governance.
