Do we still burn coal? When do we plan to stop doing it? What do we know about properly managing natural resources? Do we recycle correctly?
Knowing what is right and wrong is not always enough to make our ambitious environmental goals a reality. Social and economic barriers are often confronted and intertwined.
The solution lies in sustainability and “knowledge economy”, thus the Athens Science Festival 2019 will focus in this area! Together we will explore all challenges linked with living a sustainable everyday life, we will share good practices in order to reduce our environmental footprint and plan a future where global warming is in line with growth.
An unforgettable experience awaits this year’s festival audience: observation and demonstration will give way to exploration and experimentation and all visitors will become part of science in the most interactive and entertaining way!
The Athens Science Festival is organized by the educational organisation “Science Communication – SciCo”, the British Council, the Technopolis City of Athens, the Onassis Foundation Scholars’ Association, the Ministry of Energy and the Environment and the General Secretariat for Research and Technology in collaboration with many academics, research and educational institutions. Strategic partner: State Scholarships Foundation- IKY.
