The educational area is a unique place in the Fotofestiwal space: a multimedia exhibition extending the main program of the festival, a reading room and a place for active and creative time-spending in one.

It is also a programme of discussions and meetings with experts on the subject of a complex relationship between man and nature in the context of ecology, politics and philosophy. In the educational area, you will learn, among others, how the atmosphere is built and who pollutes it, what are the postulates of climatic marches, how to cook without wasting food, and also watch a special TV channel Antropocen TV. Here you can also write a letter to the climate.

The main partner of the Edu-zone is the University of Lodz.
