Intention of World Science Day for Peace and Development was to raise awareness for the importance of science and also to bridge the gap between science and society, with the aim of using science like a social benefit. This year's theme of World Science Day for Peace and Development is “Towards Green Societies: Equity, Inclusiveness, Participation.”
Stjepan Radić Primary School and Mr Zdenko Kobeščak gathered many distinguished guests and entrepreneurs from the Zagorje region to jointly witness all achievements and progress made by the school in the past few years.
As part of the celebration of the World Day of Science for Peace and Development, Primary School Stjepan Radic presented implementation of their four projects:
- 'Duckling School' – raising awareness of the importance of caring for animals and school environment, developing an automated system for storing rainwater, wind power and solar panels.
- '3E school under the clouds' - school that cares about the development and protects the environment, preserves and nurtures the tradition but also uses modern technology in teaching.
- 'Internet of things' – sensor based operating with the usage of Internet.
- 'Entrepreneurial Nest 2.0' - renewing the old school: making a multimedia centre, golf course, pool and horticultural arrangement, to achieve social cohesion.
At the end of the ceremony, Mr. Kobeščak thanked everyone and highlighted the importance of implementation of entrepreneurial learning as a key competence in order to develop the entrepreneurial eco-system and entrepreneurial society. Also, he underlined the importance of unity and teamwork, and how individuals can and should contribute. SEECEL’s Director Efka Heder stressed that the entrepreneurial learning is extremely important because of the further development of society.
