World Science Day for Peace and Development is celebrated worldwide on the 10th of  November. On this occasion, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) invites you to focus on building public trust in science. Trust in science is essential for developing evidence-based solutions to global challenges.

The role of science in shaping our common future can only be realised if science is trusted. It is trust in science that drives the development and application of evidence-based solutions to our world’s multifaceted challenges. Trust in science is a complex issue. It affects the way scientists work and the way science is perceived by society. Moreover, building trust in science strengthens science-based policy decisions and public understanding.

So let’s build trust in science and open up the undiscovered treasures of science to the public!
