Sopot Science Day entitled “Ocean of Changes” 2023



The Sopot Science Picnic is the finale of annual Open Science Days. It is an event addressed to all those interested in broadening their knowledge of the marine environment and the relationship between people and this environment.

The tradition of the Picnic dates back to 2003 and the beginnings of the Baltic Science Festival, and for 14 years the Sopot Picnic has been an independent event organized by the Institute of Oceanology of the Polish Academy of Sciences and the Sopot Scientific Society. Our goal is to provide all guests of the Picnic with a lot of fun while learning. Here you will meet specialists from various fields and anyone who is guided by curiosity and concern for the future of the world will be able to both broaden their knowledge and discuss their own ideas.

This year’s event is planned for Saturday, June 17th at the IO PAN in Sopot at ul. Powstańców Warszawy 55, from 10 am to 4 pm. On the square in front of the Institute, we will set up a dozen or so tents, in which various institutions will present their scientific activities and more. In addition, interesting lectures and film screenings will be held in the Institute’s seminar room, and we prepare games, competitions and workshops for the youngest.
