Making Science the Star
Developing countries often suffer from a lack of scientific culture, an essential requirement for technological development and consequent economic progress.
The goal of this campaign is to engage the film industry in order to promote greater scientific knowledge. Various scientific topics that align with sustainable development goals and local needs are discussed and actors are encouraged to serve as campaigners, making use of their celebrity status to popularise the subject, with the intention of bringing science education and research within everyone’s reach.
