The International Darwin Day Foundation is a voluntary movement which, through focusing on the scientific achievements of Charles Darwin and others, serves to improve the public understanding of science and works to bridge the gap between science and society — in short to help improve science literacy.
This Programme encourages interested groups and individuals throughout the world to participate in the annual celebration of Charles Darwin’s life.
The first public Darwin Day Lecture held in Ireland was in February 2003 in Collins Barracks. For details on Darwin Day lectures organised by the HAI since then please see the Archive page.
This year’s Darwin Day Lecture
“Darwin and Human Evolution: what do we know today?”
will be given by genetic scientist Dr Aoife McLysaght in Trinity College, Dublin on Thursday 14th February 2013 at 7 pm. For more details click here.
