UNESCO Kalinga Prize for the Popularization of Science
The UNESCO Kalinga Prize for the Popularization of Science is an international distinction recognising an individual’s work (generally as a writer, editor, lecturer, radio/television/web programme director or film producer) in communicating science, research and technology to the general public. The successful candidate is expected to have knowledge of the role of science, technology and general research for the improvement of public welfare, the enrichment of the cultural heritage of nations and the solutions of the problems of humanity.
The recipient will receive a monetary award of $20,000, a certificate and the UNESCO Albert Einstein silver medal.
Young Professionals Programme
The UNESCO Young Professionals Programme (YPP) is a global programme which provides the opportunity to young university graduates and young qualified professionals from non- and under-represented Member States to join UNESCO at the early stage of their professional career. It is managed by UNESCO in Paris. The role of the New Zealand National Commission is to nominate New Zealand citizen candidates. The countries eligible for the programme rounds change from time to time, so there is no guarantee that New Zealand will be included in the next round.
Please visit the UNESCO website for further information.
