Organizers of Saturday’s March for Science hailed the global event as a success — but they didn’t stop to celebrate for long.
Here in the nation’s capital, the site of the weekend’s main march, organizers met on Sunday with partnering organizations at the Carnegie Institution for Science to discuss their next steps for the effort. The meeting was closed to the public, but attendees said that participants were resolved to keep the momentum up. And though an exact plan hasn’t been formulated, there’s no shortage of ideas for what form the movement could take.
