Check out yesterday's Storify (see pdf file attached), presenting highlights from 40+ sessions, including an inspiring keynote by science citizenship advocate Elizabeth Rasekoala. Not to forget a colourful Nocturne at Universalmuseum Joanneum.

Elizabeth Rasekoala, science citizenship advocate and President of African Gong, delivered a thought-provoking keynote speech at 10.30. She urged participants to decolonise knowledge, dream up and deliver truly socially unclusive, colourful, gender-balanced science centres  For the rest of the day, participants were able to pick and choose between eleven parallel session strands: digital,data ownership, participatory research, spectacular science, systems thinking and many more were discussed and debated… In the evening participants enjoyed a rich Nocturne programme at Joanneum Quarter, including science shows, hands-on stations, exhibition visits and Styrian wine.
