Breakout / Science Bastler
german language

Ours is a very diverse world, in its differences but also in its inequalities. The connections are becoming closer and closer, and the way how people are doing on one side of the globe has direct consequences on those on the other.We will take a look at this variety and the problems that go hand in hand.For this purpose we will imagine the world as a village with 100 people. Where and how would they live?What languages would they speak?Who would lack food, housing or other things necessary to make a living? And is all that just?

Participants: Only children of participants of the Technology Symposium aged 7 to 12 years or children from the village of Alpbach with special invitations may be registered for this programme.

Please note: limited number of participants, registration necessary!
