On Earth Day next Saturday 4/22, join Roosevelt students faculty, and staff for the March for Science in Chicago (10am in Grant Park in downtown Chicago) . This national public event on #EarthDay2017 advocates for the value and necessity of science in society, in particular the critical importance of scientific evidence-based decision making in public policy and political discourse.
Many faculty and students from the Sustainability Studies program and the Department of Biology, Chemistry, and Physical Science plan to attend — and everyone in the RU community is invited to join us! Meet in the WB Lobby at 9:30am, after which we’ll walk over to Grant Park in time for the 10am rally that kicks off the event. Participants will march at 11am from Grant Park to the Museum Campus, for a cool science expo 12-3pm outside the Field Museum. Visitor and registration details here.
