Your Excellency Dr. Jalil Khavandkar,Conference Chairman, and colleagues;
As a world community of academics, teachers and researchers in scienceand technology education we wish you an engaging and fruitful conference. Inall our efforts to understand what will lead to a more just, intelligent andharmonious world we push the boundaries of our disciplines and envision newpossibilities. This endeavour is encouragedthrough partnerships and learning outside of our fields. We learn from eachother, challenge each other, share common concerns, as well as rejoice in eachothers’ successes. Our cultural and intellectual diversity is a strength and aresource. We draw inspiration from our common human values and ideals for allour children to live in a more beautiful and peaceful world. May our academicefforts contribute to the well being of all.
