Info point and food at the circus tent
From 3rd till 8th of November a circus tent serves as a central information point as well as a central ‘kitchen for all’. In the tent you will find information on the alternative conference, the event locations and contents and also on sleeping places. Furthermore there will be several fringe events. Following the events which are more or less decentralized, you are welcomed to gather and exchange your experiences there. The information-point will be open daily (3.-7.11) from 11am to 11pm.
In the circus tent you will find a central food distribution. The kitchen collective ‘Rampenplan’ is going to prepare breakfast, lunch and dinner daily – offering their service for donation. For the workshop-days on 6th/7th of November, it is planned to have a long break between 12 and 2:30 pm. So you will have enough time reach and enjoy lunch at 12:30 pm. Dinner is planned for 7 pm daily.

PCS in various languages!
As we are expecting a big number of international guests and wish to reduce the language barriers, most of PCS events will be available in different languages (English, German, Spanish, French). We are aware of the fact that this selection doesn’t represent the language variety and that, by making this choice, we are according more space to colonial languages. However, this is what we can offer and we are really looking forward to have this (maybe new) experience and to bring up this discussion topic with you.
Interpreters and the according technique will make it possible for speakers and audience to speak and listen in the language they feel most comfortable with. Radios will be distributed for this (you can also use your own smartphone and headphones!). Please take one if you are not fluent in these four languages, and speak into the microphone so that the interpreters can hear and translate what you say!
The evening panels will be available in English, German, Spanish and French.
The workshops at the Wissenschaftszentrum on November 6. and 7. will be available in two languages with simultaneous interpreting (mostly English and German, workshops in other languages will be interpreted into english).
For the other workshops you can organise yourself with whispering interpretation if needed!
We would like everybody at PCS to be aware of the language topic and to contribute to reduce the knowledge-gap, so that everybody can take part as he/she is 🙂
Other interesting events
You can find a calender here with various events taking place during PCS or COP23 in Bonn. It is also possible to add your own events in it!
Taking part in the conference is free – everybody is welcome! However, to make the logistics easier for us, we ask you kindly for a brief registration.
