Frequently asked questions

Who can participate?

Anyone who values empirical science. That's it.  That's the only requirement.

What, specifically, is the March hoping to achieve?

The Australian marches are working in collaboration and have issued a comprehensive list of aims. See our About page for more info.

How can I help?

If you would like to participate in planning the march, please fill out our VOLUNTEER FORM. If you can help out by handing out flyers or marshalling on the day, please fill out our EVENT VOLUNTEERS form.

How can I donate?

Visit our MyCause page and chip in little to help us cover our march costs. We have also put together a merchandising campaign. Proceeds from purchases made from our RedBubble Canberra collection go directly to support our local march. Any unused funds will go to support a TBD science charity.

Will there be a sign making event?

Of course! Smith's Alternative is hosting us on April 19th from 4-6pm. Join us to rub elbows with other science supporters and to get ideas for your placard. We'll also be using the event as an opportunity to work on our 'Ask a Scientist' placards. RSVP!

When will it be?

We march on 22 April, 2017 at 11am.

Where is the March?

We will be convening on Federation Mall on the end nearest Parliament. The march route will take us to the Senate Rose Gardens for the after party! See our EventBrite page Event Details page for the most up-to-date information.

Isn’t science apolitical?

Yes. The march is non-partisan, but it is absolutely intended to have an impact on policy makers.

Are there other marches going on?

YES! For a complete list of marches in Australia, visit our national page. For a list of marches in the United States and elsewhere in the world, visit

I am a scientist. Can I science at the march?

Of course you can (providing your science is safe for public demonstration)! We're assembling volunteers to talk about their area of science in an informal setting after the march. Fill out our ASK A SCIENTIST form to get involved!

How do I get to the March?

It being Earth Day, we encourage our participants to bike, walk, carpool and use public transportation. Pedal Power ACT is proudly supporting the March for Science by donating bike racks on the day. Remember, wear your helmet, plan your route, and bring a quality bike lock to keep your ride secure. We are also supported by the free ride-sharing service, RideVu. The bus stops on Federation Mall are not generally in service on Saturdays but we have a standing enquiry about providing service at those stops. Please check back for more details.
