Botanic Garden and Botanical Museum, Freie Universität Berlin
The Botanic Garden and Botanical Museum at Freie Universität Berlin cultivates more than 20,000 different plant species from all over the world and is focused on the earth’s natural plant diversity. They document this diversity in their collections, record and explore it in their research projects, present it in their Museum and contribute to its protection and sustainable use. They plan to develop a sustainable and innovative program for BigPicnic, which will be a model for their future education programme in terms of new methods and approaches to knowledge transfer. Their aim is to bring together young and old people, as well as local allotment holders, to talk about older generations’ experiences of food scarcity and current attitudes toward food.
