G9 GREEN NIGHT

Objective

"The GREEN 9 NIGHT (G9NIGHT) will be our 2nd experience as a consortium in managing the European Researchers' Night in Spain. This consortium has been designed to increase the awareness and perception of research as a source of solutions to the huge challenges our society is facing. It is composed of a team of eight Spanish universities acting as main partners and coordinated by University of Oviedo, covering approximately 40% of Spanish territory. The initiatives will be organised in accordance with the main policy areas identified in the GREEN DEAL: Industry for a clean and circular economy, EU climate ambition for 2030 and 2050 Clean, affordable and secure energy Sustainable and Smart Mobility and fair, healthy and environmentally-friendly food system, among others.
The G9NIGHT consists of two different major framework events and related initiatives, with pre-events motivated by the celebration of World Environment Day (5 June) and World Oceans Day (8 June) and the European Year of Rail 2021. The main event will hold 24 September 2021 in thirteen cities. During the project's lifetime, the consortium will launch a campaign ""Do your bit to keep Europe green and be an ambassador for climate action"" for promoting individual actions on climate change and sustainability. The events will be simultaneously celebrated across Spain with a common aim: bringing researchers closer to the general public and increasing awareness of research and innovation activities, creating an understanding of the impact of researchers, work on citizens, daily life, fostering interest in science among younger students, and encouraging those at university to embark on research careers. Gender equality will be guaranteed in activities, researchers and organization members.
The European dimension will be emphasised by the active involvement of researchers with European funds and Marie Sklodowska-Curie fellows, in eight actives EU Corners. The project includes European collaboration.
