The Long Night of Sciences on 8 June 2013

The Long Night of Sciences (Lange Nacht der Wissenschaften) is an annual event allowing public access to the universities and other scientific institutions. We decided to have an information stand for 8 hours at Humboldt University (HU) and to present a petition in favour of Ebrima B. Manneh, a journalist missing in the Gambia.

The officials and helpers at the HU campus were extremely helpful and friendly. Unfortunately, our stand was not located in the main university building where most of the central activities were going on. The result was a minimum of signatures on our petition and only few contacts with visitors. We are reconsidering going back next year if we cannot be closer to the focus of interest.
