WSSD science forum launches website
The forum is being organised by the South African Government at the request of Nitin Desai, Secretary-General of the WSSD, in collaboration with a number of international partners, and is being held at the Ubuntu Village. It is intended to provide a platform for highlighting the critical contributions of science, technology and innovation to sustainable development (see Science forum planned for World Summit).
Daan du Toit, deputy director for multilateral science and technology cooperation in the South African Department of Arts, Culture, Science and Technology (DACST), says that plans for the forum have been received positively by both the local and the international science community.
The preliminary programme of the forum is due to be posted on the website (www.scienceforum.co.za) shortly. In addition, individuals wishing to be kept informed of the programme for the forum, including late additions, should send a request to [email protected].
