Food Truck Area
In the foodtruck area the concept of energy saving will be demonstrated by connecting them to the grid, instead of running on their engines. This will reduce noise and air pollution. The campus will be brightened by placing chairs and tables on the nearby grass, so to invite people to use the green space. Near the foodtrucks a recycling bin is placed accompanied with more information on recycling and energy saving concepts.
The triangular square will be the focal point of the event. The focus on this square is on how to deal with food waste. A workshop will be given where people are taught how to replant their food scraps in a very simple process. The food scraps will be obtained from a gazpacho that is made on the square and handed out for free. Also, other inspiring sustainability projects from different KTH’s students will be showcased on the square: a small prototype of a wind turbine by engineers without borders, a food computer, Urban Oasis, …
Beehives and Urban Gardening
Do you know about Queen Bee McBeeface and Queen Beeyoncé ? The beehives and urban gardens are not known by many on campus, therefore they will be pointed to with clearer signs. At the KTH beehives more information is given on the importance of bees and a poster explains the concept of urban gardening, and how you can register to KTH’s urban gardens.
