March for Science 2019: May 4 Day of Action

Cochrane officially supports and is in partnership with the March for Science

The March for Science champions robustly funded and publicly communicated science and calls for science that upholds the common good, and for political leaders and policymakers to enact evidence-based policies in the public interest.

Cochrane officially supports and is in partnership with the March for Science.

This year, the March for Science will hold an international Day of Action on Saturday, 4 May 2019.

A large flagship march is being organised in New York City, with satellite marches and events, such as science town halls, rallies and outreach events, taking place in cities around the world on the same day.

Over the last two years, the global March for Science movement has organized 1,000 events and mobilized millions of people to support science and justice. The March for Science is a celebration of passion for science and the many ways science serves our global communities.

This year, the March for Science will highlight the need for science-based climate action and healthcare, as well as the importance of science education.
