On Earth Day, we march in Edinburgh in solidarity with over 500 groups across the world supporting:
Everyone who believes in rationality, education & progress at the heart of society is welcome to join - citizens, educators, families, young people, researchers, academics...the March for Science is not just for scientists, as science & research affects us all.
At Scottish Parliament, there will be speeches from a range of pro-science speakers, including Professor Dame Anne Glover (Scottish Biologist and first CSA for Scotland and first CSA for the European Commission), followed by some family-friendly science activities on the Scottish Parliament lawn along with an informal ceilidh hosted by the science-art education project Science Ceilidh to help celebrate science & culture in true Scots style (so bring along instruments, drums and placards!)
There's still plenty of opportunities to get involved - from spreading the word, joining our active facebook group, sharing the reasons why you're #AyeForSci, being a steward on the day (we still need a handful more - sign up here!) or helping us with science activities or sharing resources for this website!
We are entirely run by a small team of volunteers from across the spectrum of scientists, artists, mums and dads, students, charity workers and members of the public. We strive to be political, but not partisan, and we have the support of all of the five main political Scottish parties (statements here).
The March is free but please consider donating to help cover essential running costs (insurance, printing costs, high-vis tabards) for the day. There are also a limited stock of t-shirts available, check the facebook group or get in touch to find out more about this.
