Fundamental science is essential for a coherent approach to the challenges of a sustainable and inclusive recovery, the resilience of global supply chains, and the competitiveness of our economies. WAAS has initiated a discussion to explore the connections between the sciences, the relationship between science and society, the social responsibility of science and its contribution to energy, medicine, health, climate action, education, and sustainable development.

Each country should create its integrated approach to the research and development chain. Basic research, i.e., exploration of the unknown, as an essential human desire and motivation, ought to drive the chain. Each country should define and dialectically unite its national and global approaches to science and technology.

“WAAS is examining different models for closing the gaps which hamper the effective application of new discoveries in a manner well designed to ensure sustainable future.”

The International Decade of Sciences for Sustainable Development started on January 1, 2024. Michel Spiro, President of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics, Carlos Alvarez Pereira, Secretary General of the Club of Rome, Steven Hartman, Executive Director of BRIDGES Sustainability Science Coalition and Nebojsa Neskovic are part of the Working Group preparing the foundation of The Earth-Humanity Coalition which will manage the preparation and implementation of the program for the Decade in close co-operation with UNESCO.
