The UNESCO international official launch planned for Friday, March 13, 2020 has been cancelled because of the COVID-19 epidemic. For the same reason, the Next Einstein Forum 2020 (March 10-13, 2020) in Nairobi, Kenya, that included the African official launch of the IDM, was postponed. As a consequence, a special Live Global Launch webpage will accompany all events worldwide on March 14, starting 00:00 New Zealand time. It will show the new collaborative video, Mathematics is Everywhere, created by the international IDM community. Throughout the day, it will also post special announcements, videos, photos and reports from the celebrations taking place in more than 100 different countries. You are invited to send these to firstname.lastname@example.org (preferably no more than 1-3 photos in high resolution). Press releases produced for the launch in different languages will be accessible via the webpage.
