EKOFILM Family Day

For the last day of the festival, we have prepared a one-day programme for children and their parents at Freedom Square. Who should we present the beauty of nature to if not to children? One day they will take over responsibility for housing in cities. Enjoy EKOFILM Family Day for a greener future!

FSC Czech Republic has prepared a programme for you with colouring books and an educational game for both young and grown-up lovers of the forest. You will learn interesting information and maybe win an interesting prize: wooden toys from responsible sources and much more.

Animals living in zoos can sometimes get a bit bored in their enclosures. Come and make tools for them that will make their lives richer. Experts from Brno Zoo will tell you more about the lives of selected animal species.

The workshops of the open community bike workshop Bike Kitchen Brno will teach you how to repair a tyre, fine tune the brakes or how to fix a bike that has been lying around in the cellar for many years (or just one winter). You can borrow all the tools at the stand.

Also the superhero Smokeman will visit our Family Day. His mission in life is to reduce the amount of smoke from chimneys and help make air cleaner. From 10 am till 4 pm, he will perform experiments and invite you to play with him; the biggest shows will start at 11 am and at 1 pm.

With SVČ Lužánky you can make sustainable decorations and tools for your home. All you need is dexterous hands and a little time, and you can take home from the Svoboda Square macramé plant hangers, original decorations from Tillandsia or reused cans with herbs. 

Thanks to Buřinka, you will see two 3D printers from the Czech Technical University in Prague. You will learn more about what materials can be used and what things can be 3D printed, what research is being done and what lies ahead of us. You will also see a demonstration of digital printing and face painting and painting on stones.

The Ministry of the Environment of the Czech Republic has prepared quizzes with prizes for young and grown-up participants. In addition to the good feeling that you know how to properly separate waste, you can also take home small colourful dustbins, magnets, PEXESO cards, games and practical recycling bags.

No reservation required. More information on individual parts of the family day can be found on the events website.
