Have you heard about the protest March for Science? This march on Washington DC will be taking place on 22 April led by scientists and supported by anyone concerned about the safeguarding of the scientific community. Recent policy changes in the US have caused heightened worry among scientists around the world and this is a chance to make a public stand for the role of evidence-based science when it comes to issues such as climate change and pollution in contrast to fake claims made in service of short term corporate interests.
We want to support this march in the best way we can and so Katelyn has teamed up with her mother, a scientist in the USA, inspired by the pink Pussy hats made for the recent Women's marches, to create the Greenie Beanie campaign. You can get involved by making a hat to wear yourself or by making hats and sending to those who will be marching in Washington DC. The hats will help create a strong visual image with a 'sea of green' from those who want to support the role of science in our society!
Here's the pattern, get knitting! #GreenieBeanie #MarchForScience
