SPECIAL SESSION 7: Education and Outreach after IYA2009 in Europe


The International Year of Astronomy 2009 (IYA2009) featured tens of thousands of events worldwide. These were organised and implemented by many professionals, amateurs and volunteers who built IYA2009 into the most successful science education and public outreach project ever undertaken.
This symposium focuses on two key aspects of IYA2009: outreach in terms of communicating astronomy with the public, and the educational value of astronomy in attracting young people into science and technology studies at school and after. A huge number of events were planned across Europe, so contributors are invited to share their experiences. This symposium is an excellent opportunity to learn from each other and gather new ideas for events and projects after IYA2009.
