Supporting International Year of Basic Sciences and Sustainable Development

The Green Science for Sustainable Foundation supports IYBSSD 2022. Next IYBSSD will focus on links between basic sciences and the Sustainable Development Goals. This will be a unique opportunity to convince all stakeholders that through a basic understanding of nature, actions taken will be more effective, for the common good.

GSSD FOUNDATION will take part in the International Advisory Commitee of IYBSSD2022

Basic Sciences and Sustainable Development

Agenda 2030, adopted in 2015 by the United Nations General Assembly, is an integrated vision for the sustainable development of all the world’s populations. It is articulated into 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) towards which we must collectively strive. Several of these SDGs are explicitly linked to scientific advances:

  1. Health and well-being (SDG 3);
  2. Clean water and sanitation (SDG 6);
  3. Affordable and clean energy (SDG 7);
  4. Climate action (SDG 13);
  5. Life below water (SDG 14);
  6. Life on land (SDG 15).

But in fact all SDGs require the input of science and technology.


The Web

The WEB was invented at CERN from the need for global
collaboration for experiments in fundamental physics and it
has been developed thanks to powerful algorithms.


Vaccination has been strengthened and developed through
the identification of the viral origin of many diseases.

DNA sequencing

Progress in DNA sequencing, thanks to biomathematics,
chemistry and physics, is now guiding medicine towards
more effective individualized treatments.


Renewable energy production and storage depend on
advances in physics, chemistry and material sciences.
