It is time for scientists, science lovers, and concerned citizens to gather and make ourselves heard! With The March for Science we want to celebrate our passion for science, call for support and safeguard the scientific community.
On April 22nd 2017 we will walk out of the lab and into the streets!
In Amsterdam we will march at Museumplein.
We need to bring awareness to the community and higher bodies that science is important, in every layer of society. We should all recognize that science is everywhere, and anti-science agendas and policies harm everyone — without exception. We invite scientists and science-lovers to join us in Amsterdam for main stage speakers and "teach-in" tents. There a diverse group of science educators and scientists representing many fields will speak to the public about ongoing research and its vital importance in our everyday lives.
Everyone involved in the organization is doing this in their own time, on a voluntary basis. With this fundraiser we raise money to cover the costs for the podium, teach-in tents, professional crowd control etc.
