>>NEW: Photo stream of the March und press information
Critical thinking and well-founded judgment require dependable criteria which allow to assess the validity of information. Science steadily peruses the truth through testing information and disproving fake news. This painstaking process requires effort, but the recent opportunistic spread of “alternative facts” in politics demonstrates its importance. Not only for science, but for the welfare of society, it is critical that we boost our skills and means to effectively work against deception and that the value of knowledge is widely appreciated.
This is why people from around the world are participating in the March for Science on April 22. Scientific facts represent the foundation of our discourse in society and cannot be negotiated.
Everyone who is concerned about the careful distinction between verified facts and personal opinion is invited to take part in this worldwide demonstration for research and science – not only scientists!
