The Atelier des Jours à Venir (& Paris-Montagne) are visiting la Mandarina Space (02/11/2012 6:30pm)!

In two weeks time the Atelier des Jours à Venir (some of them members of Paris-Montagne) will be visiting la Mandarina de Newton new space in Gracia.

If you don’t go away for the long weekend and you want to meet them in person and know a bit more about their project, come next Friday 2nd of November at 6:30pm to La Mandarina de Newton new space at 12 Montseny Street, Barcelona. In the Gracia neighborhood.

The Atelier des Jours à Venir is a non profit cooperative company, composed of young researchers and teachers. Some of its founders are also part of the NGO Paris-Montagne, a collaborator institution of the project Science of the City, that has recently started its second edition.

The Atelier des Jours à Venir develops and performs teaching for students in university research curricula, aiming at fostering sound responsible practices within the research community. By addressing the implicit usages and values that coexist with rational investigation, it aims at empowering university students to become active, creative and responsible members of the research community, contributing to a fruitful dialogue with society.

In addition, the Atelier des Jours à Venir creates and supports projects of scientific culture with a strong social commitment: conveying the research and the values of scientific communities, can empower citizens, in particular in socially deprived contexts, such as French suburbs, Egypt, ex-Yugoslavia, where they have been taking action. We also take action to spread tools for citizen participation in research, from creating questions to gathering & analyzing data.

Their presentation will take the form of an informal discussion, and they look forward to interact with the assistants on the following topics:

  • Local communities
  • Research communities
  • All the interactions among these two concepts

It’s going to be great to hear from them their past experiences and future proposals and we are sure, you’ll have lots to say! So, if you are near Barcelona, do not miss it!
