You might have seen that scientists and science lovers all around the world are taking to the streets this Saturday 22nd April for the March for Science. At Science is Vital, we’re marching veterans—it’s nearly seven years since we rallied at the Treasury to protest in 2010—and, this weekend, we’ll be marching again.
- If you’re in London, the main March for Science kicks off at 12:00 outside the Science Museum.
- If you’re not in London, there are plenty of other marches around the UK. Find your nearest one here.
If you like, you can join the Science is Vital team. We’ll be meeting between 11:15 and 11:30 outside Imperial College on Exhibition Road. It’s all glass and white columns—you can’t miss it!—but, just in case you do, here is a Google Maps link. Then, we march to Parliament Square where our Chair Andrew Steele will be speaking along with other scientists, campaigners and comedians.
With a General Election looming, this march could not be more timely. Please show up and demonstrate your support for research around the world!
We hope to see you there.
