The Trust Science pledge is a worldwide campaign to promote support for the scientific process and to acknowledge the many benefits of science for society.
Society at large is experiencing a variety of challenges impacting its trust in science. The last 12+ months have openly demonstrated the importance of evidence-based solutions — in fields from healthcare to engineering.
Celebrated on 16 May, the International Day of Light is an annual United Nations observance raising global awareness of the importance of light science and technology in areas such as communications, sustainable development, climate action and healthcare.
The message of this year’s International Day of Light — Trust Science — encourages both scientists and the public alike to sign and support a declaration affirming their trust in science and the importance of public confidence in the scientific process. Now is the time for us all to pledge our support.
All supporters of the International Day of Light and its objectives are invited to join in signing the Trust Science Pledge. This includes those who support the crucial role of the scientific process in improving our quality of life.
