Thousands Around The World Participated In The 2018 March For Science

The second-annual March for Science may not have drawn the same amount of people it did in 2017, but thousands across the globe still joined together to voice their support for science. This came in many forms, from people calling for evidence-based policymaking to action on climate change, among others.

According to BuzzFeed News, the main march took place in Washington, D.C., and cities such as Los Angeles, New York City, Munich, Delhi and Durban, South Africa held satellite marches. 

The initial March for Science took place last April in response to a number of things, such as Trump's denial of climate change, the White House attempting to impose gag orders on the Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Agriculture, and the roll-back of environmental and climate regulations, among others. 

According to the March for Science official website, its organizers aim to "work toward a future where science is fully embraced in public life and policy." The organization added that it "empowers a global community of science supporters for nonpartisan advocacy in service of equitable and effective science and science policy."
