African Nations Join #MarchForScience
As the world marks the 2017 Earth Day to create awareness on environmental and climate protection, tens of thousands of scientists and science advocates worldwide are marching in 500 cities to speak out about the importance of scientific research.
Although the March for Science was sparked by the Trump Administration’s position on climate change and budgetary cuts for science research, Africans in Africa are also marching for more investment in science in their countries.
The march is going on in Nigeria’s capital Abuja, Ghana’s capital Accra, Kampala in Uganda, Blantyre in Malawi and Cape Town as well as Durban in South Africa among other cities.
Speeches will be delivered by scientists as well as researchers and climate ernthusiasts to educate people on the importance of science and the importance of climate protection against the Earth Day.
