About the World Science Forum (WSF)

South Africa, through the DSI, is hosting the WSF at the Cape Town International Convention Centre Cape from 6 to 9 December 2022 under the theme: “Science for Social Justice”.

The forum is one of the leading global platforms that encourage dialogue on the role science should play in society. It is an initiative of global science organisations that also include the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation.

Renowned thought leaders are debating various topics that include science for human dignity; science for climate justice, science diplomacy for multilateralism, and science for Africa and the world.

Several side and satellite events are taking place concurrently, and some of them are hosted by the General Assembly of the African Academy of Sciences, a Pan-African organisation whose vision is to transform lives on the African continent through science.
