Hot topics, a top-class cast and an attentive audience: The online special of WISSENSWERTE, Bremen's dialogue forum for journalists and science communicators, was a complete success. Around 420 participants had registered for the two free live sessions of the WISSENSWERTE in mini format. Consistently more than 130 spectators took part in the interactive sessions at the same time, some of them up to 260.
At the beginning of October the WISSENSWERTE planned for 30 November to 2 December in Freiburg was postponed because of the until recently rapidly increasing infection numbers. Instead, on the original opening day there was an online special on the topics "Corona: the virus and the media" and "Species and climate crisis: the burning forests".
The 17th WISSENSWERTE will take place from Monday to Friday, May 10 to 12, 2021, as a presence event at the Freiburg im Breisgau Exhibition Center.
