New ALLEA Statement: "Early Learning Opportunities for Shaping a Scientifically Literate Society“

21. 03. 2024

In its new statement, ALLEA points out that science and technology are increasingly intertwined with our daily lives and therefore it is essential for today's society to make its citizens "scientifically literate". New technologies and scientific progress also bring up ethical questions, and it will become even more critical for upcoming generations to learn how to recognise and answer them. Education in this area is therefore essential.
