with a really catchy tag #InternationalWeekofScienceandPeace
Given that we’ve just had Cop26 it a great time to look at what this week has to offer:
The International Week of Science and Peace was first observed during 1986 as part of the observance of the International Year of Peace. The organization of events and activities for the week was undertaken as a non-governmental initiative; the secretariat for the International Year of Peace was informed of the preparatory activities and the final summary of events that occurred during the week. The organizers sought to encourage the broadest possible international participation in the observance.United Nations Site
If you want to interest children to get involved there are various resources such as twinkl.
For us however we’d love to see more women involved in the solutions so please check out the bootcamps being sponsored by Government to increase the scientists and technologists in the field to help solve the climate crisis. Many of them are starting soon so taking final applicants – check them all out here.
and lets all remember whats at stake…
Random Acts of Kindness Week
We love this one as kindness really does make the world around (well that, maybe the suns gravitational pull and climate change fixes obviously!). Theres a whole page of ideas that you can take a look at and you can even become a Raktivist – check it out here. Here are some that we think are pretty fitting:
- Start a fundraiser – theres a great group we love that might be a condidate for this jellbeansmentoring (okay to be fair they are friends of ours – but still a great cause)
- Be kind to your server (not the computing type)
- Turn Your Computer Off Overnight (I know – scarey right!!)
- Organize A Cleanup Party ( or a community gardening group)
- Have a Vegetarian Day (or life!)
