The event will be held from the 8th to 13th of June and this year will include the Science Festival.
After the successful participation of the first edition in 2019, the City and Science Biennial returns in 2021 with a wide-ranging programme that will take place in different open-air spaces in the city from June 8 to 13. The Biennial is the ideal meeting to think about and debate the great challenges we face as a society from the point of view of science and technology. As a novelty, the second edition of the Biennial includes the 14th Science Festival, which will be held on Sunday 13 June and will offer a programme of activities of a more practical and family-oriented nature.
Barcelona City Council is organizing this collective event with the participation of universities, research centres, scientific, cultural and educational organizations and agents. The curatorship is made up of nine leading figures in their fields of knowledge who have been involved in drawing up a programme full of debates, round tables, lectures, conversations, performances, installations, exhibitions, film sessions and other proposals. The activities will allow participants to explore the limits of knowledge from different sections: the relationship between art and science, the future of humanity, philosophy and ethics, regenerative medicine and bioengineering, sociology and politics, and sustainable food, the latter coinciding with the fact that Barcelona is the World Capital of Sustainable Food in 2021.
Within this framework, more than a hundred different activities are scheduled to take place over the six days in different venues throughout the city, with the participation of around 200 speakers and other invited guests. These are the exclusive events of the Biennial, as the Science Festival will bring many more participatory activities where you can also find workshops, experiments, demonstrations, itineraries and other experiences to experience science in first person.
If you are interested in discovering how we will face the challenges of today and the future, what are the limits of new scientific knowledge and its social implications, take note of this essential event. You will find more information on the City and Science Biennial website.
