con gressa planned and organized the “Experiment Future” for the Gesellschaft Deutscher Chemiker (GDCh) twice consecutively – an event at which scientific and socio-political problems are examined and potential solutions are developed in workshops.
“Knowledge and non-knowledge” was the motto of the event in September 2019, which was approached by participants from various disciplines. On the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the GDCh in 2017, the topic “Wertedenken in der Chemie” (value thinking in chemistry) was the focus of attention. At the end of the annual science forum, the one-day, dialogue-oriented event focused on how the results of chemical research and development and the know-how of chemical experts can help overcome global challenges. After short keynote speeches, the participants were able to brainstorm and discuss various topics in a world café-style format. Participants took part in a fishbowl format or participated in the “House of Commons debate”.
con gressa consulted the GDCh on the formats and supported the event management on site.
