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, during the Athens Re-Science Festival 2019 we explored all challenges linked with living a sustainable everyday life and we shared good practices in order to reduce our environmental footprint and plan a future where global warming is in line with growth. Observation and demonstration gave way to exploration and experimentation and all visitors became part of science in the most interactive and entertaining way!
The Festival was organized around several thematic areas with a special focus on the following:
Green Development / Cyclical Economy / Bio-Economy / Energy / Biodiversity / Climate Change / Ecosystems / Water Resources / Soil/ Forests
