March for Science

On March 22 2017 the March for Science is organised in many countries. Its spirit is in line with the objectives of ESOF: a vast reflexion on science and its place in society.

"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... The best way to ensure science will influence policy is to encourage people to appreciate and engage with science. That can only happen through education, communication, and ties of mutual respect between scientists and their communities — the paths of communication must go both ways. There has too long been a divide between the scientific community and the public. We encourage scientists to reach out to their communities, sharing their research and its impact on people's everyday lives.  We encourage them, in turn, to listen to communities and consider their research and future plans from the perspective of the people they serve.  We must take science out of the labs and journals and share it with the world."

ESOF 2018 is fostering discussion and mobilisation towards such goals through several themes of its call for sessions open until 2 June 2017 !

Several members of the local ESOF 2018 team will actively join the March they support in Toulouse and recall its aligned objectives with the global reflexion on science in society in Europe and the world.
