World Science Day for Peace and Development is celebrated each year on 10 November. Città della Scienza as an “ONG in relation with Unesco”, takes part to this initiative in particular for what concern Naples activities. The event will involve all actors (universities, NGOs, CVOs, etc) who work in international cooperation contributing to peace and development processes. The Day will have a particular relevance in Naples since it has been considered as a crossroad of different cultures and civilizations and the city will be involved in great international events, which will be hosted in Naples, such as the World Urban Forum in 2012 and the Forum of Cultures in 2013.
