for Peace and Development

On November 10th, UNESCO celebrates the World Day of Science for Peace and Development, to emphasize the contribution that science offers to promote sustainable development and strengthen the basis for a lasting peace.

Since 2011 the Fondazione Idis-Città della Scienza, as “NGO in official relations with UNESCO”, promotes and coordinates the initiative in Naples, in collaboration with public institutions, NGOs and other social organizations.

This year the the celebration will be in the city, in particular in one of those border schools representing centres for knowledge, civil growth and social progress.

Headquarters of the initiative will be the High School Calamandrei Ponticelli, who will host the meeting, organized in collaboration with the National Institute of Nuclear Physics.
