The climate crisis and environmental degradation are two of the most significant challenges facing humanity as a whole. These challenges will last for decades, and immediate action is needed to address them. Not only is it urgent to preserve ecosystems and the abundant Earth we know it to be, but for the sake of the human species’ survival. In that sense, under the framework of the Science Culture Construction (SCC) initiated by the Andean Road Countries for Science and Technology (ARCST), the first World Green Science Day(WGSD) was launched and celebrated on December 9th, 2022. The main goal was to raise awareness of the role that science plays in societies that are peaceful and sustainable. “Green Science for and with Society” (moving towards a nature-positive world) was 2022’s theme for the WGSD. It emphasized how “science” is inclusive and equal and how it is helping to tackle important environmental goals. In 2023, we will explore the research, policies, practices, innovative ideas, and actions taken by different organizations around the world to engage society in climate change action. We want to get the public involved in open science discussions about current science-related issues. This year’s theme is “The New Paradigm for Cooperation: The Science Culture Construction Fostering Innovation and Green Development” especially focused on “Green Science and Sustainable Development in Practice.”

Our brains depend on information to work optimally. The quality of information we engage with largely determines our perceptions, beliefs, and attitudes. It could be information from other persons, the media, libraries, archives, museums, publishers, or other information providers including those on the Internet. People across the world are witnessing a dramatic increase in access to information and communication. While some people are starved for information, others are flooded with print, broadcast, and digital content. Media and Information Literacy (MIL) provides answers to the questions that we all ask ourselves at some point. How can we access, search, critically assess, use, and contribute content wisely, both online and offline? What are our rights online and offline? What are the ethical issues surrounding the access and use of information? How can we engage with media and ICTs to promote equality, intercultural and interreligious dialogue, peace, freedom of expression, and access to information? Through capacity-building resources, such as curricula development, policy guidelines and articulation, and assessment framework, UNESCO supports the development of MIL competencies among people. Free and open online courses are available for self-paced learning about MIL. Through media and information technologies, the Organization facilitates networking and research through the Global Alliance for Partnerships on MIL (GAPMIL) and MIL University Network. The recently launched MIL CLICKS social media initiative is also part of UNESCO’s strategy to enable media and information-literate societies.
7. Mega Science
Founded in 2021. Science popularization means to bring science to the general public, disseminate knowledge, and foster a scientific way of thinking among people. In particular, science popularization refers to the understanding of science and public engagement. In this way science popularization is a powerful tool and a strategic measure to build a modern society, not only disseminating useful knowledge and skills but also spreading a general approach and a common culture. In general, conflicts between the science community and public opinion are connected to people’s distrust but also to scientists’ prejudice. In some cases, science is not correctly understood by non-scientists due to the use of technical jargon and wrong communication. We believe that every topic can be the object of scientific popularization; it only depends on the communication skills of who is in charge of the dissemination and the way to disseminate it. That is why we are glad to cooperate with Mega Science, the first platform of science popularization that creates and shares content in three languages and diverse areas of science.

III. Congress Draft Agenda
Dr. Shantel Guillaume, Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Outlook for the celebration of the WGSD in 2023
The popularization of science ought to touch on issues such as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), biodiversity conservation, and green development. These are areas that need immediate attention to realize the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. It is feasible to design programs that can be sustainable over time and even included in university curriculums to engage youngsters to popularize science and scientific education. Efforts to improve the popularization of science can be directed in at least three directions: the general public, children and young adults, politicians, and entrepreneurs. Also, initiatives to make scientific and technological knowledge accessible and familiar to the general public should be complemented by educational reforms that support the role of science teaching in primary and secondary schools as well as a significant expansion of hands-on experimental activities. After all, science is an experimental endeavor. We have entered a period of technological prosperity. The advancement of science has never been so rapid, the scope of science has never been so broad, and the responsibility of fostering and promoting scientific culture has never been so vital and weighty as it is today. In our quest to popularize science, we must promote scientific culture as a way of life, viewing it as the most important component of advanced culture and the cornerstone of science and technology power. This is the only way to advance our scientific cause, and it is also our historical responsibility.
How did the Science Culture Construction start?
During the “1st Annual Meeting on Science Literacy 2021: A Prerequisite for Stimulating Climate Change Engagement” organized in November 2021. Several institutions and organizations from different fields around the world including research, academia, education, innovation, and technology, agreed on the First Declaration on Science and Climate Literacy across the Latin American and Caribbean regions. In 2022, we prepared a second version of the declaration, and in 2023, we launched its third version inviting the community of researchers, practitioners, scientists, activists, and the general public to work together to promote the harmonious development of science and technology, to contribute to the improvement of public science literacy, climate literacy, biodiversity conservation, green science, and green development to create a better future for the whole of human society.
