The March for Science - Calgary is an event that unites with over 350 other March for Science events worldwide to champion science as a pillar for the advancement of human knowledge, progress and prosperity. We gather together on April 22, Earth Day, as a diverse, nonpartisan group to call for the freedom of science in the interest of the common good, and for political leaders and policymakers to enact evidence-based policies in the public interest.

Our Mission Statement

Science protects the health of our communities, the safety of our families, the education of our children, the foundation of our economy and jobs. With its focus on deep and fundamental understanding of our world and how it works, a scientific approach to problem solving will continue to be crucial in addressing the challenges we face today and for generations to come. We speak up now because these values are currently at risk due to new policies that threaten to restrict scientists’ ability to research and communicate their findings.

To stand in support of science is not a partisan act but rather an acknowledgement that our understanding of the world becomes deeper, stronger, and more useful when we scientifically test our hypotheses about the world. Scientific discoveries restart our hearts, cure and diagnose our diseases, lengthen our lives with antibiotics, X-ray our bones, deliver our electricity, enable our GPS, stream our music and movies, capture photographs of our children, and connect us to each other across the country and across the globe. None of this would be possible without science or the scientists in Calgary and around the world who continue to bring us life-changing discoveries.

The National March for Science and its platform can be found at marchforscience.com and local issues, ideas, and details for Calgary can be found at https://calgary.marchforscience.ca

March for Science - Calgary is raising money to support the cost of our event. This is entirely a grassroots movement, and your donation goes only to support the Calgary movement. We will neither receive nor give money to the national March for Science, and we have no official financial support from any organization. We are not a federally recognized non-profit organization at this time.

The funds we raise will be used to finance expenses associated with safety, equipment, communications, liability—only those things that we cannot or will not receive via direct donation. Some examples of costs will include sound equipment, advertising and so on.

We thank you so much for your consideration. Events like these happen when the community comes together to speak out and work hard in order to make voices heard. We're proud of what we do, proud of Calgary and thankful for your support.

Any amount helps!

With sincere thanks,

Organizers, March for Science - Calgary
