MILE at the European Researchers’ Night on 30 September

Members of the Transmedia research group at UAB together with Asociacion Kudwa and the Municipality of Ripollet – partners of the MILE project – will lead two workshops as part of the European Researchers’ Night on 30 September in Barcelona in the CosmoCaixa. The two workshops are organised with the two EU-funded projects GreenSCENT and MILE.

The European Night of Research is a European-wide public event that aims to bring researchers and research closer to the public. This year’s motto is “Research for Change” with a series of innovative research on offer across 25 different European countries. 

The first workshop Go Green! How to organise a sustainable and accessible event” (18.00-18.30 in Espacio Beta) is led by Marta Brescia Zapato and Sarah McDonagh and focuses on the practicalities of organising a sustainable and accessible event. Through the use of practical exercises taken from the work carried out as part of the GreenSCENT project, workshop participants will work together to co-create guidelines for an accessible and sustainable event which facilitates, rather than hinders, the transition towards a carbon neutral society.

The second workshop How to create more inclusive cities? (19.00-19.30 in Espacio Beta) coordinated by Chiara Gunella, Razan Ismail and Meritxell Caler Vergara focuses on the co-creation of an inclusive and welcoming city based on participants’ ideas, feedback, and experiences. This workshop will use the MILE project methodology to explore what constitutes an inclusive city for young people, identifying strategies so that everyone feels at home in our cities.

Each workshop will last 30 minutes with more information available on the European Night of Research website.
