The OAE Review on
Equity, Diversity And Inclusion In Education


The main aim of the resources is to encourage diversity awareness and to support designing processes that aspire at granting everyone the opportunity and free choice to access scientific culture. Astronomy, thanks to its universality, charm and fascinating power, can be a means to add something to this framework, and foster everybody's self-esteem and self-confidence with regards to science, but also life in general. Astronomy has a special appeal that helps the teachers and astronomers to translate it in something understandable for everyone, it can help foster equity between the different countries and different cultures via international collaborations, it is effective in reminding everybody that they have the right to be part of the game, bringing their own cultural, social and historical narratives on the table, and the philosophical aspect of past, present, future, who we are, why we are here can also play a big part in the self- and diversity awareness process.
