Make Your Astronomy Event Inclusive 

Let us all make sure that differences don’t become barriers by allowing everyone to fully celebrate astronomy “Under One Sky”.

 

The IAU highly encourages inclusive and diverse policies for all IAU100 events. Make your event more inclusive and welcoming to a wider and diverse group of audiences. In this page, you can find a list of resources and activities on how to make your 100 Hours of Astronomy Event more inclusive.
