Adriatic Garden workshops | aqua_forensic 2.0

A person stumbling upon a plastic bag or packaging on lovely Adriatic beaches or in the refreshing Adriatic sea might normally be horrified, yet is able to remove himself somewhere where his eyes and mind are spared of the horrid visible pollutants. But what about the pollutants s/he cannot see? What can/will s/he do about that?

The workshop aqua_forensic at the Adriatic Garden will introduce you to the problem of invisible water pollutants. The goal of the workshop is to make the invisible anthropogenic pollutants and their effects on water habitats visible. We will be present by a short intro lecture presentation of all the invisible pollutants – from chemical to the sonic levels. Part of the workshop will be also gathering and analysing samples of local seawater and seabed and utilizing some informative “forensic” strategies through a hybrid (science, DIY citizen science and art) approach to thoroughly investigate these topics. We will also give you the opportunity to listen to the underwater soundscapes with hydrophones, as well as discuss the underwater noise pollution and its presence in the Adriatic sea.

The workshops will be held on:

  • 11 Sept 2020 from 11AM – 1.30PM @ PiNA, Koper, Slovenia with Robertina Šebjanič and Miha Godec as mentors
  • 9-13 September @ Youth center in Dubrovnik, Croatia with Gjino Šutić and Ur institute team as mentors

In order for us to be able to adhere to all health and safety recommendations regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, we are limiting the number of participants.
