Science Week Ireland
In its 25th year, Science Week 2020 took place from November 8th to 15th against a societal backdrop never previously experienced in our lifetime. Now, more than ever, we have turned to the information science provides to guide our decisions.
The core theme for Science Week 2020 was ‘Science Week – Choosing our Future’ focusing on how science can improve our lives in the future, and in the present. This explored how science can help us to make positive choices that will impact the environment, our health, and our quality of life. Changes based in scientific evidence that we make today can hugely improve our future life, but also right now. The subject matter was broad and incorporated topics such as the future of work, the future of health and wellbeing and how we will all live in a world where we have had to mitigate and adapt to the challenges facing society.
Climate change has not gone away, and now society has had to unite and face the coronavirus disease, COVID-19. Throughout Science Week 2020 there was a variety of ways for you to get involved through events, interviews, social media and much more.
