STEM & Youth: IAESTE at the 10th International Forum of NGOs in Official Partnership with UNESCO
Olga Legacka, Development Manager represented IAESTE at the 10th International Forum of NGOs in Official Partnership with UNESCO which took place in Moscow, Russia on 26 and 27 November 2018. More than 200 participants from the whole world and different non-governmental organisations gathered to discuss the theme “Science as Common Good of Humankind: Science in our minds and Science for our times”.
Many important questions were raised about the role of science in diplomacy, freedom and boundaries of science, the evolution of artificial intelligence, biotechnology and biomedicine in the new world, as well as the lack of woman in STEM and challenges of the Youth generation. The Forum was also an excellent platform to network with other NGO organisations. IAESTE sees a lot of possibilities to cooperate more with the UNESCO in the future to address the challenges facing by the young people as well by the companies looking for well-qualified engineers & scientists.
