Join us on Wednesday 27 March for a special Lates in collaboration with UNESCO UK that will explore the incredible work of this global organisation.

UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation) is the United Nations body responsible for coordinating international cooperation in education, science, culture and communication. It aims to ensure that everyone has access to quality education, may grow and live in an environment rich in diversity and dialogue, can fully benefit from scientific advances, and can enjoy full freedom of expression.

Discover how UNESCO uses science and the latest technology to understand the past and safeguard our future. From preserving historic sites like Stonehenge and Greenwich to the ancient sculptures of Katmandu meet the UK based experts carrying out the vital work of UNESCO across the globe.

Find out how autonomous submarines are helping climate scientists map changes in the Antarctic ocean and how lasers could help avert natural disasters. Learn how scientists are working together to provide access to clean water, avert environmental catastrophes and tackle climate change.

All this and much more, including the chance to go on a virtual journey that is out of this world in Space Descent VR with Tim Peake and get down at our famous intergalactic silent disco.
