WHAT IS MILSET?
The International Movement for Leisure Activities in Science and Technology (MILSET – Mouvement International pour le Loisir Scientifique et Technique) is a non-governmental, non-profit and politically independent youth organization, which aims at developing scientific culture among young people through the organization of science & technology programs, including science fairs, science camps, congresses and other high quality activities.
The Expo-Sciences International is a non-competitive event that brings together young people, educators and scientific experts from Asia, Europe, North America, Latin America, and Africa, to exchange ideas and compare scientific projects fostering networking and international collaboration.
The ESI aims to promote scientific knowledge in a multi-cultural environment through an exhibition of projects created by children and young people from all over the world. The Expo-Sciences International is a unique opportunity for budding talents to get to know each other and share scientific innovation thus to open their minds in research, creativity and initiative with the perspective of allowing them to build up their personal fulfillment and to realize their ambitions.
The program of the Expo-Sciences consists of a variety of activities: cultural and scientific visits, leisure activities, exhibition of projects, workshops, animation and conferences.
Participating in ESI is an opportunity to:
• Install and animate a space to highlight youngsters, teachers and leaders’ efforts and interest in research, science and technology innovation by enhancing their
motivation while contributing to their personal development.
• Establish relationships with other institutions with similar goals through the development of scientific, technical and social projects in order to exchange ideas and create actions according to the needs of today’s world, for the benefit of the industry, the educational sector and society as whole.
• Be represented at an international level through the young people's projects, allowing for the dissemination of knowledge amongst the main target audience (in other words, the young).
• Promote scientific culture in a multicultural environment, creating the space for experience and good practices to be shared so as to achieve higher-standard scientific activities.
