Programme

We are deeply sad to announce that due to the current and ongoing political and economical situation the originally planned Biotoopia´22 programme has had to be reorganized. Instead of a three-day conference, this year Biotoopia will take place in Viinistu Art Harbour as a special programme free of charge for the public – on August 18th an art day will be held and on 19th, a nature excursion to the island of Mohn. In addition, several exhibitions linked to Biotoopia in various places in Estonia, will be open to the public until October (e.g. in Tartu Art Hall, Tallinn Botanical Garden, Vaal Gallery, etc.). More information on this can be found on our website events page.

The 2022 Biotoopia will focus on ECOAESTHETICS and RECONCILIATION ECOLOGY.

On the first day (17.08) the subject orbits around aesthetics and ethics, beauty and significance of ancient natural habitats, beauty from the perspective of evolution and harmony of metamorphoses. On the second day (18.08) we deal with technological and economic issues, possible uses for biospheric big data, crypto markets of CO emissions, biotechnologies and changes in climate policies and economics. On the last day (19.08) there will be closing words and analysis, also a trip to Mohni island filled with several workshops and surprise art programme part.

 

The program is being updated and there can be small changes!
