March for Science
March For Science. Why? Because A General Election Gives UK Scientists A Real Chance To Make Their Voices Heard
Equally never has it been a more important for science to stand up and be heard. At a time when fake news is rife and independent experts face challenges in getting their message heard, the aim of the March for Science is to celebrate the vital role that science plays in everyone's lives and to respect and encourage research that gives us insight into the world. We want to champion science and the cross-border collaborations that are vital for progress.
This Earth Day [April 22], groups of scientists and science advocates are organising across the world in a global March for Science to bring attention to the importance of scientific research. Activism is new for many within the scientific community and not everyone agrees that the march will be beneficial or effective.
