This week, on Saturday, April 22nd (Earth Day) the global science-interested community is uniting to march for science across the world. Many of our members will be joining the March for Science in Washington DC and other cities around the world.
The March for Science is about the role that science plays in our everyday lives, but also about political activism for researchers, celebrating the diversity of research cultures, and making sure that policy developments are grounded in strong evidence.
You can follow the events live on Twitter at #MarchForScience
ScienceOpen will be part of the global march, and in five different locations! A more informed dialogue between scientists and citizens requires openness, transparency, and access to information – one of the key mission statements of ScienceOpen, and the reason we will be out marching in force.
CEO Stephanie Dawson will be marching in Berlin, Germany, with other members of our team there. Find her on Twitter and join them here!
Prof. Alexander Grossman, co-founder of ScienceOpen, will be taking to the streets in Leipzig, Germany. Get in touch here.
Tibor Tscheke, the other co-founder of ScienceOpen, will also be marching in Boston, USA! Contact him here.
Erzsébet Toth-Czifra will be marching in Budapest, Hungary, too, and you can reach her here.
We welcome anyone and everyone to stand by our sides with the rest of the march, and together celebrate science as a global community!
