Last week we presented our new scenes on the cost of food at the 2014 Freiburg Forum on Environmental Governance organized by the eights generation of the Master of Environmental Governance students. The event titled “The Cost of Food – Beyond the Price Tag” involved various creative workshops on scienece slam, infographics, theatre and visual arts, followed by a public panel discussion. In addition, the students launched the Freiburg Urban Agriculture guide and a Smartphone App.
On 14th August we presented our new play “A Bachata in Fukushima” at the BRIGHT Students’ Conference 2013“Energy Transition in the 21st Century”. The BRIGHT Students’ Conference is an annual gathering of students from member universities of the League of European Research Universities (LERU). The conference aims to provide an environment in which excellent students can focus on themes crucial to their education and cultural development, as field specialists and stakeholders of the Europe of tomorrow. The conference offers the participants a platform on which they can discuss politically, socially and intellectually challenging topics that are shaping our present and future.
On the 22nd June our show “A Compass to Sustainability” was the final event of the Freiburg Sustainability Week. The week with various events on living sustainably in Freiburg was organized by the city council and open to the public. About 180 people watched our performance, including the major of Freiburg (Dr. Dieter Salomon) and the dean of the faculty of environment and natural resources of Freiburg’s university (Prof. Barbara Koch).
In order to fit the thematic contents of the event we adapted various of our scenes and developed new ones on the concept of the “sustainability compass“. In addition we translated some of our scenes to German.
