Dear Friends,

This Saturday April 22, on Earth Day, Puerto Rico will join more than 480 events around the world with the March for Science-Puerto Rico. The event will begin at 11:00 a.m., in Plaza Colon in Old San Juan.

At the global level, the March for Science seeks to celebrate and defend science. At the local level, the March for Science-Puerto Rico has four concrete goals:
  • To foster a scientific culture in Puerto Rico;
  • Insist that the country's public policies be informed by scientific evidence;
  • To foster a solid and sustainable science infrastructure in Puerto Rico; and
  • Emphasize the urgency to take action in response to climate change.
As part of the organizing committee, Ciencia Puerto Rico invites its members to register to participate in the march and take action in support of its goals. Below you will find more information on events related to the march, including a night of scientific stories in Lote23, transportation and resources to support your participation in the march, and actions you can take to extend our impact before and after the march.

Join us to celebrate the importance of science for Puerto Rico, our lives and the world!
