Democrats Abroad Austria Take Part in the March for Science


Join DAA as we participate with others around the globe in the March for Science!

We’ll be easy to spot with an American flag!

After the march, from 5pm onwards, we’ll meet-up for discussion and libations at the nearby Halle restaurant in the Museums Quartier.

Science is grounded in facts and substantiated arguments. Science and technology are the biggest contributors to the prosperity of society via education and health care. Much remains to be done to reduce existing global inequalities. Considering the enormity of the challenges our world will face in the near future, we need solutions that can only be realized and implemented by a science-based society.

The current political climate, not only in the United States but also abroad, gives us cause for concern. The falsification and denigration of facts for ideological purposes threaten not only science, but also the basis of democracy.

We call upon you to protect, strengthen, and celebrate the democratic foundations of science. We are not alone in this mission: 400 near-simultaneous demonstrations the world over prove that science and society are both willing to work towards an open-minded future.
