The dissemination of mathematical culture is one of the missions of researchers and academics. The network for the dissemination of mathematics Autour de la Diffusion des Maths (AuDiMath - GDS 3745) gathers anyone involved in the dissemination of mathematics towards society and among young people, especially in primary and secondary school.
Breakthrough Prize sponsors an annual global competition for high school science and math students to inspire creative thinking about fundamental concepts in the natural sciences and mathematics.
Each student submits a video that explains a challenging and important concept or theory in mathematics, life sciences, or physics. The winner receives a $250,000 college scholarship. The winning student's teacher and school also benefit: $50,000 for the teacher and a state-of-the-art $100,000 science lab for the school.

As the Prix D'Alembert meets its 17th edition, the French Mathematical Society (SMF) decided to launch a second award, also amounting to 2000€ and awarded every two years, to encourage innovating actions of mathematical dissemination: the Prix Jacqueline Ferrand.
For both awards, applications run until March 15th, 2018.
Two actions of the dissemination network AuDiMATH : working groups on writing and a website of videos.

The prestigious Institut Henri Poincaré (IHP) in Paris is an international centre hosting scientific and dissemination activities in mathematics and theoretical physics since 1928.
CNRS News, the international website of the CNRS, publishes an article on "Bourbaki and the Foundations of Modern Mathematics": a group of French mathematicians who endeavored to publish a structured presentation of the discipline in the form of a monumental treatise.
The film entitled "Marrying maths and art" ("Les noces de l'art et des mathématiques"), produced by CNRS Images, deals with the artistic installation of the French mathematician Pierre Berger, based on the geometrisation theorem of Thurston-Perelman (2002). The idea is to enable the public to experience views and sounds in 3-manifolds.
