Science4Society Week (S4S Week) is a collection of science education activities designed to inspire young people. They are co-ordinated by Scientists for Global Responsibility, and focus on the contribution that science and technology can make to peace, social justice and environmental sustainability.

The project was set up to provide an alternative to activities funded by the arms and fossil fuel industries.

In 2020, the theme of S4S Week is tackling waste and pollution in their many forms.
