Universe Awareness

UNAWE is an international outreach activity that uses the beauty and grandeur of the universe to inspire very young disadvantaged children. Goals are to:

  • broaden children's minds,
  • awaken their curiosity in science,
  • stimulate global citizenship and tolerance.

There are lots of activities in several countries and even if there isn't one in your country, doing programs for underpriviledged children should be a staple for all Sidewalk Astronomers.
