Science for Peace and Development

World Science Day for Peace and Development was established in 2001 by UNESCO, and is celebrated worldwide on 10 November each year.  This year the them is "Science for a Sustainable Future, celebrating the launch of the UNESCO Science Report: towards 2030."  This collection has been developed to demonstrate the relationship between science innovation and the built environment. We highlight the science and engineering necessary for innovation in the built environment, the role of architecture and design in creating the spaces in which scientific research and study is conducted, and the facilities through which the benefits achieved are brought to bear on the lives of the general public.  

In this exhibition you will find smaller collections on topics such as environmental design, health and sanitation, science education, and disaster preparedness. In a collection on the history of science, the exhibition also acknowledges that scholars in Muslim societies have long been applying insights gained through scientific exploration to the well-being of both individuals and societies. 

This exhibitions and the associated collections are a representative sample of the material available in this online library.   We invite you to contact us with comments or suggestions, and to continue exploring on your own.  See the Using Archnet collection if assistance.
