Representatives of the UN, as well as the International Council for Science, adopted a resolution to organize a special event dedicated to science. Its goal is to popularize scientific literacy, a plan was prepared – “Science Agenda – Framework for Action”, and a year later the World Science Day for Peace and Development was approved.
