日期:2022/01/14   IA

 

聯合國教科文組織卡林加科學普及獎

一項國際榮譽,旨在獎勵個人在向社會傳播科學和促進科學普及方面的傑出貢獻。

通過彌合科學與社會之間的差距,科學知識的好處可以用來改善日常生活,賦予人們權力,並找到應對全球、區域和地方挑戰的解決方案。為了加強科學與社會之間的交流,重要的是不要忽視為縮小差距所做的努力。需要倡導科普,包括在正式課堂環境之外向公眾傳播科學知識和科學方法、促進公眾了解科學史的所有活動。

聯合國教科文組織卡林加科學普及獎是一項國際獎項,旨在獎勵個人在向社會傳播科學和促進科學普及方面做出的傑出貢獻。該獎項頒發給在幫助向公眾解釋科學、研究和技術方面作為作家、編輯、講師、廣播、電視或網絡節目導演或電影製片人的傑出職業人士。聯合國教科文組織卡林加獎獲得者了解科學、技術和研究在改善公共福利、豐富各國文化遺產以及為地方、區域和全球層面的社會問題提供解決方案方面的潛在力量。

許多過去的獲獎者本身就是科學家,而其他人則接受過新聞培訓或教育工作者或作家。有些人還曾是諾貝爾獎得主。以前的獲獎者包括朱利安·赫胥黎爵士、瑪格麗特·米德和大衛·阿滕伯勒爵士。

教科文組織 Kalinga 科學普及獎是教科文組織歷史最悠久的獎項,由印度 Ka​​linga 基金會創始人兼主席 Bijoyanand Patnaik 先生捐贈創立於 1951 年。今天,該獎項由 Kalinga Foundation Trust(link is external)、印度奧里薩邦政府(link is external)和印度政府(Department of Science and Technology(link is external))資助。

It is awarded to persons who have had a distinguished career as writer, editor, lecturer, radio, television, or web programme director, or film producer in helping interpret science, research and technology to the public. UNESCO Kalinga Prize winners know the potential power of science, technology, and research in improving public welfare, enriching the cultural heritage of nations and providing solutions to societal problems on the local, regional and global level.

Many past Prize winners have been scientists in their own right, while others have been trained in journalism or have been educators or writers. Some have also been Nobel Prize winners. Previous laureates include Sir Julian Huxley, Margaret Mead and Sir David Attenborough.

The UNESCO Kalinga Prize for the Popularization of Science is UNESCO’s oldest prize, created in 1951 following a donation from Mr Bijoyanand Patnaik, Founder and President of the Kalinga Foundation Trust in India.
