### The RPA committee is proud to announce a special session:

### EMS Session on Public Awareness; Wednesday July 20th from 16:30 till 18:30 in H2023

Public awareness is a crucial issue for modern mathematics. If mathematics is a fundamental discipline for our society, on the other hand the great majority of people is unaware of the ideas and the achievements of mathematics. This event, promoted by the Raising Public Awareness Committee of the European Mathematical, is intended to provide an overview of the activities of the committee and also to give some suggestions for possible activities to be developed in each country. The new improved site Mathematics in Europe will be presented, as well as the possibilities of future collaborations. Some reports about Math Fairs and Math Exhibitions will be also discussed. Contact person is Roberto Natalini.
