Local/national conference 5 November 2014 - 6 November 2014
Heildelberg, Germany

This conference's topic perfectly resonates with the 2015 Ecsite Annual Conference 'Food for curious minds' theme. The focus of this meeting will be on the impact food has on our body and mind, both from the long-term evolutionary perspective and from the perspective of everyday life. The conference programme will highlight the biological and cultural processes through which food both defines us and transforms us. Metaphorically, as well as literally, in what sense are we what we eat? Register by 9 October (fee: 40 euros).

International conference 22 September 2014 - 26 September 2014
Helsinki, Finland

Other 16 November 2013 - 17 November 2013
Granada, Spain

In Spain, VOICES focus groups highlighted what needs to change for a zero waste society, in terms of citizenship, policy, and research and innovation. The VOICES public event in Granada builds on these outcomes, with a Maker Faire, debates, workshops, pavilions and a range of exhibitions, bringing together the public, schools, research centres, politicians, universities, artists and craftsman to see how we can truly make the most of urban waste as innovation.

Other 23 November 2013
Lisbon, Spain

VOICES outcomes will be disseminated in Lisbon as a key part of Portugal’s National Science and Technology Week, directly after the Ecsite Directors’ Forum which brings together science centre and museum directors from across Europe. The public event combines three distinct elements: an exhibition, a Maker Faire and a conference.

Other 22 November 2013 - 23 November 2013
Grenoble, France

CCSTI Grenoble will organize a VOICES public event as part of the European Week for Waste Reduction. The VOICES consultation showed French citizens are particularly concerned about product lifespan. To look more closely at this issue, a week of repair and reuse activities will be held in different local associations: concrete workshops or demonstrations about how to repair, reuse collect and sell waste objects. Open door events and workshops will give concrete examples of how Grenoble can deal with its urban waste, innovating in order to make waste a resource.

Other 22 November 2013
Ljubljana, Slovenia

Wasteologies! Come and join the House of Experiments, the Slovenian “hands-on” Science Centre, in Gimnazija Ledina secondary school and on the streets of beautiful Ljubljana city centre, to get involved in the dissemination of the VOICES outcomes and look at ways urban waste can be used as a resource in Slovenia.
