We’ve combined science and advocacy for more than fifty years. The results speak for themselves.
Since our beginning in 1969, the Union of Concerned Scientists, along with supporters, allies, and partners, has helped develop practical solutions to some of the world’s most pressing problems. Together, our advocacy and actions have resulted in an impressive record of success.
As with science, curiosity and passion drive us forward. We are proud of our impact so far—but we know our most important accomplishments lie ahead.
Assembled below is a list of recent UCS-driven wins and major milestones, chronicling the many ways we act at the intersection of science and policy. Each success is made possible through the power of our staff, Science Network, activists, and committed members.
