About

Several Unions including IUBS have proposed 2022 to be declared as The International Year of Basic Sciences for Sustainable Development. The aim is to focus link basic sciences and the Sustainable Development Goals. This will be a unique opportunity to convince all stakeholders that through a basic understanding of nature, actions taken will be more effective, for the common good.

In November 2019, during its 40th session, the General Conference of UNESCO adopted a resolution recommending that 2022 should be proclaimed the International Year of Basic Sciences for Sustainable Development by the UN General Assembly.

IUBS is one of the founding organizations and its nominee Dr Lily Rodriguez is the Vice-Chair of the Steering Committee
