MARCH FOR SCIENCE

Support Rally
Hobart, TAS| 22 April 2017
Why we march
TAKE A STAND FOR SCIENCE IN POLITICS

Science, not silence

This is a global event bringing together people from all walks of life who believe we need more evidence and reason in our political process.

The March for Science celebrates the public discovery, distribution, and understanding of scientific knowledge as crucial to the freedom, success, health, and safety of life on this planet.

We are a nonpartisan group, marching to demand action in the following areas: Literacy, Communication, Policy, and Investment.

Here in Hobart, the high density of scientists has brought a particular focus to the importance of Science Communication and Literacy. By shining a light on these two areas we wish to foster a stronger relationship between the public and the science that makes Hobart a home for researchers from around the world.

Science belongs to everyone. It should be pursued for the benefit of all people and for the health of the environment we depend upon.

March for Science Australia acknowledges the traditional custodians of the Australian continent, the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

We recognise that science and scientific pursuits have been used in the past to disenfranchise many minority groups. We are committed to the promotion of science, now and in the future, as an endeavour which all persons have the right to pursue and enjoy the fruits of, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, religion or lack thereof, political affiliation, or socioeconomic status.

Diversity has strengthened and enriched scientific inquiry, and the inclusion of all peoples and the promotion of equal opportunity and training within science should be a goal pursued by scientists and non-scientists alike.
