On April 14th, from 11am-2pm at Science World, scientists and the public will once again come together in Vancouver to raise awareness, advocate and speak up for science.

In late winter 2018 organizers from the Metro Vancouver area once again rose to the call to help organize the March for Science Vancouver event. While the inaugural event occurred on Earth Day in 2017 and reflected a literal march in solidarity with the suppression of evidence-based decision making and undercutting of science funding after the United States 2016 election, this year’s march is focused on celebrating science’s role in the everyday aspects of our lives.

The objective of the event “to call for science that upholds the common good and for political leaders and policy
makers to enact evidence based policies in the public interest” remains a common thread that unites organizers and participants alike.

The March for Science has become an annual event celebrated across Canada and the United States. Our aim is to host an inclusive event to feature scientists from a variety of disciplines and backgrounds to show the world how science touches our everyday lives.
