BigPicnic: Big Questions – engaging the public with Responsible Research and Innovation on Food Security
Final Festival event – 27th February 2019, Real Jardín Botánico de Madrid, Spain.
We invite you to join us for the BigPicnic Final Festival - the finale to the BigPicnic project, celebrating the achievements of our Partners and audiences.
BigPicnic is a Horizon2020 project that brings together the public, scientists, policy-makers and industry to help tackle the global challenge of food security. Botanic gardens, have been co-creating exhibitions and participatory events with people from all walks of life, to generate dialogue and build greater understanding of food security. Our collaborative approach gives a voice to adults and young people, communicating their views to policy-makers, sharing ideas, encouraging debate on the future of our food and achieving Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI).
The festival is a free one-day public event featuring a range of speakers, workshops, stands and activities to continue the work of BigPicnic in generating active interest and dialogue around food security.
The event will bring together educators, policy-makers and stakeholders to celebrate the findings of the project and discuss how the policy recommendations can be implemented in Europe and beyond. This will happen through a series of high-level talks and debates as well as training sessions and a market place, where attendees can explore the resources developed through the project. There will also be the opportunity to share stories, ideas and traditional culinary delights associated with the BigPicnic partnership, which represents 13 countries.
See you in Madrid!
