The relations between society and STI (science, technology and innovation) is an important topic in the Basic Plan. My presentation will review the trajectory of how the science literacy is addressed from the start of the Basic Plan and how the concept was expanded to a comprehensive policy of enhancing the engagement of general public to the STI policy and advancement as the result of environmental, social and economic change locally and globally. The recent development and the role of science center and science museum in the global trend of sustainable development will also be addressed in the presentation.
