From a space odyssey to a species odyssey
To celebrate the 50th birthday of Stanley Kubrick's masterpiece, the 502001.CH group is collaborating with different public and private institutions with the aim of organising a series of citizen science and science communication events in 2018. 

The goal is to reflect and think together on the future of our species, with 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY as a starting point for our national conversation.

Workshops, Scientific speed-dating, Scientific Cafés, TEDx, Symposium, Conferences, Round Tables, Film Screening, Café Cinés, etc... 2018 is gonna be an intense year! 

Then, mid-2018, we will launch an online forum on our website 502001.CH. This platform will enable participants to continue the discussion on the topic and to evolve in different directions.
