Cruising down to the Carribbean for the next stop on our whirlwind tour of the March for Science satellite sites.
Feeling left out? Want some coverage for your satellite march?
Our goals are much like the others participating in the March for Science.
We seek to promote scientific culture in Puerto Rico and to establish bridges between scientists and the citizens of our island.
Although science is all around us and we benefit from it every day, the concept of Science is sometimes abstract for the majority of Puerto Ricans. We want to bring science to the public at the same time that we promote our local scientific community and our contributions to society.
We fully support an informed process of law making, decision taking, and public policy establishment. These processes cannot be alienated from science, and should take into account evidence based information obtained as a product of the research and experience of our local scientific communities.
It is important that we establish a sustainable scientific infrastructure for Puerto Rico. Science is the key to every country's social and economic prosperity.
By promoting a solid network and sustainable ecosystem for science in our island we will promote and increase the social and economic prosperity of Puerto Rico.
We must take action in response to climate change. Our economy, our ecosystems, and our quality of life are already being impacted by this phenomenon.
We march to raise awareness of the urgency of taking action to counteract the negative impact of climate change, both as individuals and as a country.
On Saturday April 22nd, 2017, we will meet in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico to March for Science.
We invite all Puerto Ricans to march with us on Saturday, whether a scientist or not.
Join us to defend the role of science in our every day life!
Join us to celebrate science.
