Dickinsonians Come Together for the Earth Day March for Science

On Earth Day, April 22, Dickinsonians are participating in the March for Science in Washington, D.C., and numerous other satellite marches going on across the nation. “Our reasons for marching are diverse, but a common thread is that we value science, scientific inquiry and science education as vital to the wellbeing of our communities, nation and planet,” says Neil Leary, director of the Center for Sustainability Education.

Leary encourages all Dickinsonians to march in person or in spirit by printing the ‘Why I March for Science’ sign. Then, write your reasons for marching on the sign, take a photo of yourself with your sign and share it on social media using #dsonsustainability and #MarchForScience today, on Earth Day and beyond. 

Going to the March for Science in Washington and want to meet up with fellow Dickinsonians? Gather on Saturday, April 22, at noon on the 17th Street NW side of the Washington Monument grounds. Look for science teach-in tents. Wear a Dickinson hat or shirt, and carry your Dickinson "Why I March for Science" sign. Questions? Email sustainability@dickinson.edu.
