Sep 2010, Potsdam: Schiffbauergasse-Festival "A City for one night"

On the 18th and 19th of September the theaters of the city of Potsdam invite everybody to the Schiffbauergasse Festival “A City for one night”, which offered the opportunity of not only broaden ones horizon on various sciences but also give a hands-on on science itself. Geoscientists from the University of Potsdam and partners were represented with their own pavilion themed:

A world in Transition: The communication of geoscientific research

Main feature of the pavilion was the question of how our earth has changed over the centuries. To only name a few, questions like “what the earth looked like”, “what information we have about minerals and the shape of mountains?” and “how the dangers that can arise from communication processes in the Earth's interior” were the central questions that had been answered.

The pavilion was built in cooperation with the University of Potsdam, Department of Earth Sciences and the Coordination Office Geotechnologien (Potsdam). Particularly interesting was how to realize this in a small space (eight square meters) and how to addressed the wide range of visitors. The successful realization of the project is supported by a wide range of praise and a great feedback. All in all it was a successful presentation of geocommunication.
