TITUSVILLE, FL. — The March for Science internationally unites scientists and science enthusiasts to march together as a diverse, nonpartisan group to bring awareness to the nation on how important science and scientific advancements are for all citizens. The mission of the inaugural March for Science champions robustly funded and publicly communicated science as a pillar of human freedom and prosperity. The goals for the march are to humanize science, partner with the public, advocate for open, inclusive and accessible science, support scientists and affirm science as a democratic value. The march provides awareness to the nation as well as political leaders and policymakers to enact evidence based policies in the public interest. This March for Science will occur on Earth Day, April 22, 2017 in Washington, D.C. at the National Mall. In addition, over 300 satellite marches will occur worldwide.
The March for Science-Space Coast is Brevard’s local officially registered march that will take place at Space View Park, Titusville, FL.
