March for Science Follow-Up Actions

Keep the momentum going! You can continue to be a strong voice for science and build dialogue with your neighbors, community members, legislators, and others about science and its value. Here are some ways to keep engaged:

View or download our Five-Week Action Plan.

TODAY:

Share videos, photos, and impressions from the March with AGU!
Tweet @theAGU or share on Instagram
Hashtags: #ScienceIsEssential     #MarchforScience      #ScienceServes
Submit photos and videos to AGU’s Tumblr (check the hashtag March for Science when you submit).

 

WEEK ONE:

Tell AGU your story of science and its impact on society, so we can share it even more broadly.

 

WEEK TWO:

Send a Science Is Essential postcard to your legislators, or host a postcard-writing party to encourage colleagues and friends to write and send them too. You can also request a printed Science is Essential postcard (bulk requests accepted, while supplies last).

 

WEEK THREE:

Congress is starting to consider funding for fiscal year 2018 (October 2017 – September 2018), including setting priorities for science.  Urge your members of Congress to ensure America’s scientific enterprise remains strong by providing robust funding for our science agencies. Take a few minutes to voice your support for science!

 

WEEK FOUR:

Sign up to find a group of like-minded AGU members in your area with whom to take action and continue communicating science and its value. Or form your own group with colleagues and friends.

 

WEEK FIVE:

Talk with your community about science and its impact on your region. You can give a talk, invite a community group on a lab tour or field trip, or engage in many other ways. Want some guidelines?
