Meet the IAU Astronomers! Programme

The Meet the IAU Astronomers! programme connects amateur astronomers and informal and formal educators with IAU member astronomers for virtual or in-person events. Through these meetings, the IAU members speak with children, adults, undergraduate students and other members of the public on astronomical research topics, the importance of astronomy for society, and choosing astronomy as a career. The programme also facilitates undergraduate-level lectures. The intent is to present opportunities for colleges and universities to introduce astronomy to their students, particularly at institutions without astronomy programmes.

The Meet the IAU Astronomers! programme aims to enable any community to meet professional astronomers and share the wonders of the universe regardless of where they are in the world.
