Event description

Description

In our first partnership with the Wikimedia Foundation, we’ll be hosting a discussion and working with people aged 15 - 24 to explore the future of knowledge creation and how projects like Wikipedia can support free knowledge, for everyone. There will be a further focus on Australian plants and the knowledge base of Indigenous Australians to get everyone started.

The afternoon will be split into two parts:

  • Part One: Shaping the future with Wikimedia (2:00-4:00pm): We’ll be working with young people to discuss how the Wikimedia Foundation can continue to shape how knowledge is created, used and shared in the future.
  • Part Two: Australian plants – past, present and future (4:30-7:00pm): We’ll be hearing from expert speakers who will share their knowledge about native plants, how Aboriginal people use these plants, and what we can learn from the past to help inform the future of using plants as food and medicine.

Hot chocolate and marshmallows on offer!

Please note, this free event is aimed at 15-24 year olds - but all ages are welcome. Places will be prioritised for 15-24 year olds.

This event is partly financed by a grant from the Wikimedia Foundation, public donations and a grant from the State Government of Victoria. 'Science for All' is proudly supported by the Royal Society of Victoria.
