Education for a Science-Based Global Development (2011)

Joint G8+ science academies’ statement for an education for a science-based global development

 

(2011)

Economic growth, provision of food and progress in health – as measured by the spectacular increase in life expectancy during the 20th century and into this first decade of the 21st century – is attributable mostly to advances in science and  technology and the expansion of systems of research and education. These advances have impacted our daily lives in many ways including travel,  communication and access to new technologies. In the future, science and technology will continue to be key for global development, for example, to meet the need for new and sustainable sources of energy.
