About the International Year of Glass

In May 2021, the UN declared 2022 to be the International Year of Glass after a successful campaign led by several international glass organizations.

The International Year of Glass is set to include many activities across the world, including an ICG Congress in Berlin, a Glass Expo in China with satellite events, and Art/History Congresses in Egypt, the US, and Europe. Dedicated issues of international journals will be printed, exhibitions are planned in museums, and educational materials are being prepared.
