The International Year of Science Engagement (IYSE) will inspire and empower people with knowledge, tools, and platforms designed to share their know-how, skills, and experiences. It will provide the interactive space in which the citizens of the world can engage with science and achieve the SDGs.
This global initiative will build the momentum necessary to engage more voices and more minds with science and showcase its opportunities and contributions directly. It will equip the international community with the tools needed to push harder and further for transformative change. It will engage scientists worldwide with diverse stakeholders and the public to build consensus, test solutions, improve their theses, methods, and enable change.
Science engagement can be employed as a tool to promote science literacy, mobilise political will, and create stronger links between science, research, policymaking and the public: The International Year of Science Engagement will create environments in which the rewards of science are understood, valued and applied for the global good.
