Meet the IAU Astronomers! Programme

The “Meet the IAU Astronomers!” programme connects teachers, informal educators and amateur astronomer groups with IAU-member astronomers for a virtual presentation. Through these meetings, the IAU members will speak with children, adults and other members of the public on astronomical research topics, the importance of astronomy for society, and choosing astronomy as a career.

Speakers come from all of the IAU scientific divisions and represent 29 languages including English, Spanish, French, Italian, and German. We aim for any community to meet professional astronomers no matter where they are in the world.

The International Astronomical Union (IAU) promotes and safeguards the science of astronomy in all its aspects, including research, communication, education and development, through international cooperation.
