The March for Science is the first step of a global movement that is defending the vital role that science plays in our health, safety, economies and governments.
But it’s not only about scientists and politicians; it’s about the very real role that science plays in our lives and the need to respect and encourage the research that gives us insight into the world we live in.
The Cape Town March for Science has been organised by Julie Kohn, a visiting researcher from Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, and her colleagues in the African Climate & Development Initiative, the Department of Biomedical Engineering and the Department of Molecular and Cell Biology.
The Cape Town march starts at 10:30 on Earth Day – Saturday, 22 April.
