March for Science: Photos from around the world

bb11e28a6ffe50e6e7d2773c41758060On Earth Day (22 April) a global March for Science was held in more than 600 cities. Thousands of people — from farmers to politicians, biologists, science communicators and celebrities — marched in solidarity with scientists across the world whose work may be sidelined by politics or out of the public eye.

This gallery highlights scenes from marches in Africa (Malawi, Nigeria and South Africa), Asia (India, Philippines), Latin America (Costa Rica, Brazil, Colombia) as well as major events in the global north (United Kingdom and United States). It features a few of the organisations involved and individuals expressing their own personal reasons for showing support for scientists.
