InScience Film Festival

New: Science Film Club! Science films with InScience and NEMO Kennislink

InScience film festival and NEMO Kennislink are starting an online film club: every first Wednesday of the month we meet online to watch a science film together and discuss it with researchers and each other. On June 2, we kick off with The Serengeti Rules (Nicolas Brown, 2018).

The Serengeti Rules

In 1960, a group of young scientists headed out into the wilderness, driven by an insatiable curiosity about how nature works. Immersed in some of the most remote and spectacular places on Earth, they discovered a single set of rules that govern all life. In the twilight of their careers, these five heroes of modern ecology look back on their ground-breaking discoveries. The Serengeti Rules reveals how the pioneering work of these scientists changed our view of nature.

On Wednesday 2 June at 7.30 pm we will watch the film online together, then we will talk about nature management in the Netherlands. Does intervention in Dutch nature make sense? Can we make our country ‘wild’ again? Do we even know what nature is in the Netherlands? We conduct the conversation together with two guests. Liesbeth Bakker (Wageningen University & Netherlands Institute of Ecology) is Europe’s first associate professor of Rewilding Ecology. As a sociologist and photographer, Darko Lagunas investigates the social dimensions of ecology, from non-Western perspectives.

The moderation is in the hands of NEMO Kennislink editors Anne van Kessel and Esther Thole.

Participation in the online program is free. Register via this form.
