This event has ended.

"To use things with care" is the most important form of ecologically conscious living, together with a correct understanding of the purpose of a certain object. Biketope explores this notion by focusing on bicycles. This will lead visitors to speculate about LCA and the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions.

Visitors will be invited to try different types of bicycles in the main venue, while the satellite venue will display information about the potential of bicycles - the importance of which is now being reconsidered in the context of global environmental problems - problems related to the disposal of numerous abandoned bicycles, as well as case studies from different countries around the world gathered by the embassy. There will also be workshops where visitors are encouraged to reconsider the value of things that are normally thrown away. This event will provide audiences with the chance to think about the relationship between design and the environment, and the potential of design.
