About International Year Light and Soils

Science achieved its own status during the creation of UNESCO, in 1945, which has since resulted in the implementation of several programmes in this area of knowledge. These programmes aim to contribute to the maintenance of global peace and security, as well as to the development of societies. In this sense, UNESCO has sought to promote scientific cooperation over the years, across national borders, ideologies and the specific characteristics of each culture. Since the UNESCO’s 70th Anniversary, the International Year of Light and the International Year of Soils are simultaneously celebrated in 2015, as well as the Decade on Biodiversity (2011-2020) and the Post-2015 Agenda for Sustainable Development, Science should be, now more than ever, at the service of society, driving sustainable development and alerting us to the consequences of our activities, albeit focusing, first and foremost, on possible solutions that will allow us to meet the challenges we face at present, so that we may secure our future.
