The Earth Day 2017 March for Science Made History

Presenters on the National Mall in Washington DC spoke from the heart looking directly at the White House in the shadow of the Washington Monument. Their moving stories, combined with captivating videos, will help inspire the next generation of scientists, leaders, advocates, activists, citizens, and children to reenergize the movement started almost 50 years ago with the first Earth Day.

An engaged crowd braved the absolutely miserable weather. They came for the speakers, not for the music. There were thousands of hardy souls who came out before 8 am and stood in the damp cold and rain for more than 6 hours. Then they marched for 2 hours!

We reached millions more people through traditional and new media. There were over 300 credentialed media outlets. Our livestream of the rally was viewed more than 2 million times through Buzzfeed, Facebook, and other sites. The overall reach of the event was in the 100s of millions.

Scientists and citizens were energized worldwide. There were more than 600 marches which attracted hundreds of thousands of people in cities and towns around the world. There were hundreds of memorable signs. There were even penguins waddling at an aquarium and marine biologists in scuba marching underwater.

We look back at the Earth Day 2017 March For Science as a transformative moment as people worldwide stood up for science and our planet.
