Just Published: Connect- UNESCO International Science, Technology and Environmental Education newsletter

Read the new edition online.

The most recent edition of ‘Connect’ focuses on the issue of scientism, a belief that scientific knowledge is the foundation of all wisdom. In this focus article, ‘scientism’ is a word that is used to criticise those who think that sciences are more important than the arts for understanding the world. The authors ask whether ‘scientism’ hurts science education, and, more generally, educational systems.

The newsletter contains additional articles about UNESCCO’s regional activities in Science , Technology and Environmental Education as well as a reviews of recent publications in the field.
