The World Science Day for Peace and Development 2019 - "Open Science, leaving no one behind"

10 Nov 2019

I wish to send greetings to everyone on The World Science Day for Peace and Development 2019 [1].
GeoForAll community has been contributing to Open Science and Open Education over many years. Details at
It is nearly 25 years ago (in 1994) that I first came across the amazing “geo world” by pure chance. I was able to learn Geospatial Science thanks to the help from many kind people who I will always be grateful for their kindness to me.   So it my duty now to help open more STEM education opportunities to all.

I am requestingall colleagues who are part of key international scientific organisations like the International Science Councilto support Open Science and use the opportunity to work for establishing dedicated Research Centres for Open Science (with focus on geoeducation ) globally, so we can provide STEM education opportunities for all. 
The best gift to give is a gift of useful knowledge. 
Best wishes,
Dr. Suchith Anand
