The Tokyo Protocol is a set of principles to successfully contribute to society and was explicitly endorsed and agreed upon by the world’s science centres/museums networks in support of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The Science Centre World Congress (SCWC) was held every 3 years, focused mainly on the science centre field. The SCWC was redefined to the Science Centre World Summit (SCWS) in 2010 encompassing the entire human society. The first SCWS2014 was held by Technopolis®, the Flemish Science Centre, Mechelen, Belgium, yielding the comprehensive Mechelen Declaration to enhance public engagement for a better world. At the convening of SCWS2017, science centres/museums networks recognise the importance of an evolving application of the Mechelen Declaration, with the “Tokyo Protocol” that is designed to connect the world for a sustainable future.
An outstanding global debut in 2016 November, the world’s science centres/museums celebrate and demonstrated that their institutions could be the Earth’s most influential combined force for engaging the public with science, technology, related civic decision-making, and direct action to solve the critical issues facing the planet. The ISCSMD in 2017 will be 10 November.
On the Role of Science Centres and Science Museums Worldwide
In Support of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
Science centres and science museums throughout the world are committed to promoting scientifically literate societies and participatory citizenship, by educating, empowering and inspiring people of all ages about the impact of science on their lives. Since 1996, leaders of the field have convened in six world congresses, reaffirming these commitments in two formal declarations (Toronto and Cape Town.) These congresses provided the basis for convening the first Science Centre World Summit (SCWS2014) in Mechelen, Belgium, yielding the comprehensive Mechelen Declaration of principles and concrete actions to enhance public engagement for a better world.
At the convening of the second Science Centre World Summit (SCWS2017) on 15-17 November, 2017 in Tokyo, Japan, parties recognise the importance of applying the principles of the Mechelen Declaration more precisely to strengthening public engagement in global sustainability. Underscoring this important role for the field,
This Protocol stands as a fully endorsed supplement to the Mechelen Declaration opened for signature on 19 March, 2014 at the convening of the first Science Centre World Summit in Mechelen, Belgium and adopted as a framework with the following seven action points:
