the festival

and all you need to know!

Nowadays, communication is considered as a basic and indispensable ability for whatever we do. The festival “How to K.I.S.S. better in Science!” is an innovative initiative funded by the Youth Board of Cyprus. It began in November 2017 as a conference and continues this year on 13-14 April in the form of the festival.

The festival focuses on Science Communication and includes interactive workshops, presentations, speeches, discussions and tasting. During the weekend, people from all social and education levels will be given the opportunity to have their first contact with the term “Science Communication”, to learn if and in what form we can find Science Communication in our daily life, how affects our lives and thus why is a responsibility of all of us, but also the consequences when this is not happening.

This year’s edition aims at the wider public and will consist of real examples of everyday life, so that everyone can identify with. The message that we seek to pass is that science is everywhere and it can be met in various ways within a typical day. This will enable everyone to realise what he / she benefit, if science starts to disseminate in a simple, understandable and common way.
