About a year ago, an estimated 1.07 million people in cities across the globe participated in the very first March for Science. This year, Skåne will have its very own March for Science, organized by the association Allmänhet och Vetenskap as part of a larger campaign for science called #HurVetDuDet.
On April 14 in Lund, participants will walk between MAX IV and ESS, passing by the site for Science Village. This symbolises Skåne’s dedication and commitment to science in society and politics.
When and where:
Assembly at 13:00 on April 14 at MAX IV (Fotongatan 2 in Lund). From there the march will pass ESS before returning to MAX IV, finishing no later than 15:00.
The theme of this year’s march is Hur vet du det? (In English: How do you know that?) The idea behind the campaign is to infuse this important scientific question into political debates where statements of fact often go misused and unchallenged.
2018 March for Science official statement:
The March for Science champions robustly funded and publicly communicated science as a pillar of human freedom and prosperity. We unite as a diverse, nonpartisan group to call for science that upholds the common good, and for political leaders and policymakers to enact evidence-based policies in the public interest.
