The BES Formally Supports ‘Science is Vital’

The BES is supporting the ‘Science is Vital’ campaign, a grass roots movement which aims to highlight to Government the consequences for the UK’s science base and economy of cuts to the science budget. Science is Vital is being co-ordinated by the Campaign for Science and Engineering.

Members of the BES and others are encouraged to:
– sign the Science is Vital petition (which has now been signed by over 18,000 individuals)
– join a march in Westminster on Saturday, 9 October (2pm)
– join a direct lobby of Parliament on 12 October (3.30 – 4.30pm)
– Write to your MP about the impact of cuts to science spending

More about all of these activities is on the Science is Vital website.
