Over 2,500 people took to the streets to participate in the March for Science in Stockholm on 22 April 2017. Marches were also held in four other Swedish cities, Gothenburg, Uppsala, Umeå and Luleå, as part of the global March for Science initiative that involved hundreds of thousands of people in a total of 610 cities worldwide.
The March for Science in Sweden received the support of over 80 partner organisations. Many individuals also volunteered their time to help with the planning and running of the Stockholm March for Science, which was coordinated by VA (Public & Science). VA was also responsible for coordinating promotional activities for the March for Science in Sweden and setting up the March for Science Sweden website.
Work continues in Sweden to build upon the momentum generated through the March for Science. For further information contact Lotta Tomasson.
