Edinburgh March for Science
Sat 22 April 2017, 13:30 – 15:00 BST
The Edinburgh March for Science is part of a growing international movement that celebrates the importance and value of science in everyday society. On Saturday, 22 April we unite as a nonpartisan group to support and champion both science as a common good and policymakers that use facts and evidence to develop policies in the best interest of the public.
This family friendly event will celebrate science as a vital part of everyone's lives whilst also highlighting some of the challenges facing the scientific community. Marchers are invited to wear green, bring a sign, and help make this a celebration as much as a protest.
The march will begin at Waterloo Place just east of North Bridge at 1:30pm and end at the Scottish Parliament with a handful of speeches from prominent champions of science in Scotland.
SCIENCE IS FOR EVERYONE!
