We are also working with other likeminded organisations to host science hustings events in Scotland and Wales. These will give the chemistry community in the two nations the opportunity to ask candidates from across the political parties how they will champion science if elected and what they will do to push science priorities up the policy agenda.
How can I get involved?
There are two great ways to get involved and raise your voice ahead of the elections. First, you can attend a hustings event and asks questions that matter to you. The events are open to the public and links to sign up are below.
Secondly, you can take part in the manifesto campaign by writing to your local candidates through our simple campaign platform. It as easy as filling in some simple details and an email will go to your local candidates asking them to support our manifesto and be a science champion in parliament.
We need as many science champions as possible at Holyrood and the Senedd and by taking part in campaigns like this you help to raise the profile of the Royal Society of Chemistry and the work done by the chemistry community in Scotland and Wales. You can join the campaign by following these links:
