On the 24th of September 2010, a big event will be held in Brussels in the frame of the Researchers' Night. This event will be organized by the Belgian Science Policy Office in collaboration with major Belgian universities and research institutions. Considering that 2010 is the International Year of Biodiversity, the Researchers' night will focus on the mutual understanding of researchers and citizens around this specific theme. Researchers will get the opportunity to talk about themselves, about their research and their role in daily life. The programme of activities will be varied: experiments, games, quizzes, films, discussions, and entertainment. The citizens will be able to express their feelings, skepticism, doubts, fears or enthusiasm on the importance of biodiversity. Researchers will show that behind recommended behavior, behind simple deeds, there is research. And a researcher. The idea is to show that biodiversity researchers are part of the society. Subsequently the citizens will be asked to become biodiversity research actors.
