“The goal we establish is to create connections that last a lifetime.” This is the message that Paksy Plackis-Cheng, Senior Fellow of Research and Media at UC Santa Barbara, has given to the students in the first online meeting on the second of December, summarizing in one sentence the spirit of this international collaboration: the comparison between cultures and experiences, providing benefits that can lead to human progress.

Only because a statement has been made by someone who works in a scientific sector, it does not make it "science". To be science, it must be based on data, it must be capable of accurate predictions, and it must have been verified in analogous circumstances. Otherwise, it is just a personal opinion.
Equality, diversity, and democracy? impactmania has been covering and connecting with people who drive cultural, social, and economic impact for the last five years.
