The cornerstones can survive 2009:

IYA was a step forward in the designation of astronomical sites by the UNESCO Word Heritage program

“ Portal to the Universe” is meant to continue in existence at ESO, as the ultimate source of astronomical news for the public

The SIAA site can remain in existence

100 Hours of Astronomy: Large-scale public observing programmes will continue

The FETTU project will remain and be updated

The Galileoscope will become a commercial product (more expensive)

Dark sky awareness activities will continue

Cosmic Diary will remain open and produce a book

Most special projects will also survive

IYA2009 is a springboard for the enhancement of IAU educational activities (strategic plan)

Incorporation of some cornerstones in the IAU plans:

Openings for astronomy in developing countries, at the professional and amateur level, and consolidation of links with IAU

Organized efforts to improve teaching of astronomy in particular, and science in general, at the world level

UNAWE, a program to create an international awareness of our place in the universe and on Earth, addressed to children in underprivileged environments
