In my opinion it should be the absolute maxime of any scientist to dedicate their research to the well being of all people, to peace and sustainability.For that cause the World Science Day for Peace and Development was declared by UNESCO in 2001 and it is celebrated yearly on the 10th of October.
The day promotes the peaceful use of science and the solidarity and cooperation of international scientific communities. Furthermore it attempts to strengthen the interest of the public in current scientific developments and their implications for peace and sustainability.
This year the World Science Day for Peace and Development stands under the motto of “Science A Human Right” to further celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. A special focus is layed upon the 27th article of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, witch declares that every human has the right to participate in scientific development and protects the author of any scientific development.
Another focus is to further develop and ease the access to education and science especially for girls, in order to make the current and all future scientific advances available and beneficiary to all humans.
