WILA Bonn, Science Shop

Since 1984 Bonn Science Shop (WILA Bonn) dedicates its work to key social challenges: the enormous land use, energy transition, sustainable work fields, social justice, just to name a few. In order to overcome those challenges Wila Bonn aims to build a bridge between Science and Society. The overall objective of enabling people to use their knowledge for a socially acceptable change of their natural and social environment aligns with the stance that only those who have understood the societal challenges and their options for action can act to make a change. Thus the education of people (both scientists and citizens) is of major importance to WILA Bonn. WILA Bonn provides the coordinating team for the TeRRIFICA project.
