Vaasa Climate Change Conference & Networking Forum

Vaasa Climate Change Conference & Networking Forum

Generally about the event

It is an environmental event focusing on Climate Change, aiming to combine an academic and scientific conference with cultural and artistic expression using as a tool, the art form of nature film making with the projection of high quality nature and science documentaries followed by a puppet theatre performance, music and dance performances during the last popularization day. The goal of this event is to utilize the power of arts and culture in order to make them “the vehicle” to carry important academic and scientific knowledge and positive news about new and already existing solutions to tackle Climate Change, out from the universities and to the ordinary public.

The event will take place in Vaasa, Finland from 26-28 September 2019 and it aims also to become a diverse and creating networking forum for Energy related institutions and decision makers, educational organizations, clean tech companies, scientific and energy researchers, young climate school activists, media producers, journalists, filmmakers and film festivals, politicians, decision makers and of course the general public – all with Nordic and international dimension.

The idea of organizing this type of event was born during the 9th edition of Vaasa Wildlife Festival, in September 2018 and since then, thanks to the enthusiasm, the engagement and the productive teamwork to develop this idea from all parties involved, we ended up to a very interesting collaboration, as follows:
