""Science literacy is the artery through which the solutions of tomorrow’s problems flow" — Neil deGrasse Tyson

VISION

 
This new UK-based NGO seeks to support pilot projects and a world where everyone has a basic science literacy, bringing greater confidence and empowerment to help solve day to day problems, and understand the technical underpinnings of our lives to bring about social change for the better.

MISSION

 
HWDI believes that there must be a fundamental rethinking of how individuals and communities learn. To bring about wider and deeper information landscapes for all, it will work across sectors to establish innovative partnerships between traditional and nontraditional players to address the interdependent challenges of combating ignorance.
Just look at what HWDI are achieving...
ISLA- the world’s first prize for innovations in science literacy.

These type of visual narratives make science
subjects more accessible and fun for adults and children.
 
HWDI is participating in long term research into SL methods and how these are being delivered in developing countries. The preliminary assessment report was published in 2017 and now we are investigating specific SL models and their effectiveness.
