ScientistsForFuture and the role of the university

ScientistsForFuture

History

The first …-ForFuture groups were founded already in September 2018. The concept “ScientistsForFuture” was used by me and some researchers with connection to Stockholms university.

With the purpose to give the young people FridaysForFuture a scientific foundation for their first global strike, some german speaking researchers around Gregor Hagedorn founded the association ScientistsForFuture in March 2019 and published a statement saying “The young people are right about the ecological and climate crisis”. Over 25 000 researchers have joined the statement.

Since then, ScientistsForFuture has become an international movment within the academic world: https://www.scientists4future.org/stellungnahme/international/
