Marche Pour Les Sciences - Toulouse
Bonjour à tous,
Next Saturday, The March for Science will take place around the world. I think it would be a great opportunity to bring together people from internations who share that interest.
Please find below some information about the event (I took it from faceboook). Maybe we can meet somewhere before and go together.
Rendez-vous le samedi 22 avril 14h à la Prairie des Filtres (Chateau d'Eau).
Destination: Le Quai des Savoirs, allées Jules Guesde.
Pour défendre l'INDEPENDANCE et la LIBERTE des recherches scientifiques publiques,
Pour promouvoir un meilleur DIALOGUE entre sciences et société,
Pour renforcer l'emploi de méthodes et resultats scientifiques dans le processus de DÉCISION POLITIQUE,
From the official organizers of the March for Science:
"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 policy makers to enact evidence based policies in the public interest.
The March for Science is a celebration of science. It's not only about scientists and politicians; it is about the very real role that science plays in each of our lives and the need to respect and encourage research that gives us insight into the world.
Nevertheless, the march has generated a great deal of conversation around whether or not scientists should involve themselves in politics. In the face of an alarming trend toward discrediting scientific consensus and restricting scientific discovery, we might ask instead: can we afford not to speak out in its defense?
There is no Planet B. Join the #MarchForScience. "
