Accessibility Statement

World Science U, a program of the World Science Foundation, d/b/a World Science Festival (hereinafter referred to as “World Science U,” “us,” “we,” “our,” or “Company”) is committed to making our website (the “Services”) as accessible as possible to people with special needs, including those with visual, hearing, cognitive and motor impairments. While we strive to provide accessibility and usability for users, it may not be possible in all areas of the website with current technology and other restrictions.

We always make sure that our website follows best accessibility practices by following the principles of universal design. This ensures the site is flexible and adaptable to different users’ needs or preferences and is accessible through a variety of different technologies, including mobile devices or assistive technologies.

Wherever possible, our site strives to adhere to Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.  These guidelines outline four main principles that state that sites should be: 

  • Perceivable: Information and user interface components must be presentable to users in ways they can perceive.
  • Operable: User interface components and navigation must be operable.
  • Understandable: Information and the operation of user interface must be understandable.
  • Robust: Content must be robust enough that it can be interpreted reliably by a wide variety of user agents, including assistive technologies.



On our Services, we may link to third-party websites (such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) and may include or use embedded third-party content to share information or promotional content.  We cannot control or correct problems with these third-party websites. You may also want to address your concerns directly to these third parties.



We are committed to providing accessible Services.  If you experience problems or have any suggestions for improvement, please get in touch with us. We do continuous improvement based on your feedback.
