World Science day to be observed locally

PRESS RELEASE – Saint Lucia joins the international community – on 10th November, 2014 – in the annual celebration of World Science Day for Peace and Development.

The theme for this year’s celebration is “Quality Science Education – ensuring a sustainable future for all”.

This World Science Day for Peace and Development is a call to highlight the importance of the responsible use of science for the benefit of society, and the need to inform and involve citizens in science.

Quality science education tackles both global and local challenges, and it is vital to lay the foundations for a more sustainable future for all.

Educational policies should give equal access to girls and boys to resources and laboratories.

Traditional and indigenous knowledge must be recognized, all while taking advantage of new information and communication technologies (ICT) for innovation and creativity.

It is against this background, that the Saint Lucia National Commission for UNESCO, Ministry of Education, Human Resource Development and Labour invites Saint Lucia and especially our ASPnet schools, to take action by organizing activities to mark the day.

Happy “World Science Day for Peace and Development” to all Saint Lucians.
