Today we celebrate World Science Day for Peace and Development. Declared by UNESCO in 2001, according to the organisation the purpose of this day is to renew the national and international commitment to science for peace and development as well as emphasise the importance of science in society and the need to engage the wider public in debates on emerging scientific issues.
