Green for Ostrava

Meeting: Greenery and Public Space

Part of the series ‘Evenings with Experts’

Greenery and public space. An issue that affects us all – and a topic that is doubly relevant to Ostrava now, as the city is bidding to become European Green Capital 2020.

Come and meet an architect, a social geographer and the Deputy Mayor to discuss how we can boost community participation in issues of public space, which direction Ostrava should take, and how to use public space in a responsible and meaningful way.

Before the meeting, you are invited to attend a workshop in the form of an urban planning game: ‘Creating Public Space’ (16:00 – 17:15). The workshop will continue after the meeting as well.

MORE INFO: Meeting and discussion with experts and city representatives, held as part of Ostrava’s ‘Academic Night’ project.

GUESTS: Mgr. Ondrej Slach, Ph.D., Ing. arch. Eva Špacková, Ph.D., Mgr. Katerina Šebestová

Worlds of ice

Our planet depends on ice more than we realize

For many years, scientists have been studying global warming and its effect on ice in polar regions – the melting of the i

 

ce caps is causing sea levels to rise. But ice is not unique to our planet – it can be found in many other

distant worlds, almost everywhere in our solar system and even in the furthest reaches of the universe.

The programme includes a live presentation of the sun’s movement through the sky.

A fascinating demonstration of the night sky – the rotation of the sky, the Big Dipper and the Little Dipper, the North Star, the sun’s movement through the sky in our part of the world, the sun’s movement above the equator and at the poles, midnight and midday sun, the Northern Lights.

Programme length: 22 minutes + 25 minutes live presentation

EkoAuto 2018

Third eco-transport fair

Main topics:

  • gas-powered cars
  • electric cars
  • gas-powered and electric buses and trucks
  • hybrid vehicles
  • pumping and charging stations (private households, companies, public facilities)
  • fuels: natural gas (CNG, LNG), hydrogen, LPG, biofuels
  • electric vehicles, batteries and fuel cells
  • vehicles, infrastructure and clean mobility projects

The third EkoAuto fair showcases a range of eco-friendly transport solutions. Its main aim is to inspire people to buy electric cars, gas-powered vehicles and other clean transport solutions.

The event will present a wide range of vehicles running on electricity, compressed or liquid natural gas (CNG, LNG), hydrogen, LPG and biofuels. Carmakers and dealers will showcase their passenger cars, vans, trucks and buses running on clean fuels or electricity. There will also be motorcycles, electric bikes and other vehicles with zero or low emissions and small environmental footprints.

The fair also presents clean mobility projects to the general public, gives more information about new technologies, and provides details of the emerging infrastructure for ecofuel filling stations (CNG, LNG, LPG, hydrogen, biofuels) and electric vehicle charging stations. The exhibiting companies will offer a full range of information as well as showcasing their fleets of eco-friendly vehicles.

EkoAuto 2018 will take place at the Černá Louka (Black Meadow) exhibition centre in Ostrava at the same time as the “Energy-Efficient Household” fair and the “Roofs and Buildings 2018” construction industry exhibition. We expect EkoAuto to build on last year’s success and attract plenty of attention from experts and the general public – because interest in gas and electric vehicles is growing all the time.

Find the Source

As in previous years, Ostrava’s water management company OVAK is celebrating World Water Day with its fun educational project “Find the Source”, targeted at children in grades 4 and 5 of the city’s primary schools.

About the project:

The first part of the project – organized to mark World Water Day (22 March) – focuses on theoretical knowledge. Each registered class group will receive six competition tasks connected with the topic “water”. Each task will then be graded on a scale from 0–10 points, and participants can also win an extra 25 bonus points!

After the theoretical part, class groups which have successfully completed 6 tasks will be given instructions on the second part of the project.

The second part takes place on 1 June 2018 at the Silesian Ostrava castle. It comprises a programme of fun events including the presentation of the awards for the entire project. Teams with five members each will represent each class group, competing in various outdoor tasks and challenges; the remaining children will be able to enjoy a special accompanying programme full of fun activities.

The top three class groups will win a one-day sightseeing trip to some of the most beautiful places in the Moravian-Silesian Region, plus other prizes.
