Science and Global Citizenship Education

“There is so much that humanity could gain, so many ways in which it could flourish, were the appalling waste of the possibilities of science and technology to be deflected from the goals of war and the armaments’ industry to the tasks of peace and sustainable development.” – President Michael D. Higgins, 11th of January 2017, BTYSTE.
