    Full description of the concept

    We are The Fieldtrippers! Your ambulating education-station, your traveling classroom, your nerds on wheels, your eco-school-bus! We're here to teach you all that we know about science and nature!

    We want to create a "nature school-bus," where we bike around the Borderland and get people excited to come on adventurous excursions with us. We plan to pack all the things that field biologists and explorers need to discover nature around them: binoculars, magnifying glasses, test tubes/ containers for collecting rare specimens, literature about insects, flora, algae etc., maps over the geology (bedrock and soil layers) of Boesdal, nets for catching butterflies, sifters for examining ocean bottom sediments, snorkels & masks, lab coats, crazy goggles, mad science hats, and of course AN EXAM! .....just kidding!

    We also want to make flags for our bikes so that YOU can easily identify us when we ride around recruiting eager explorers to join us on our fieldtrips.

    We are here to inspire, educate and spread the knowledge about this fantastic planet we live on. We are also eager to host discussions about our impact on the environment and generally philosophize over how we humans can live more harmoniously with our surroundings.

    By the end of the festival we would like to have a little exhibition for everyone to see JUST how much Borderland has to offer when it comes to Nature. We will build some kind of easel to display the posters we co-create together after our workshops.

    So, grab your boots, your packpack, your brain and come join us on a fieldtrip through the Borderland!

    About the group/Artist

    We are two freshly examined biology & earth science students who love to explore the planet we live on. We are super excited to show you and teach you about some of the miraculous wonders that the Nature of Boesdal has to offer

    How can other burners co-create with you?

    Are you crazy about birdwatching, know lots about insects or would you love to share your knowledge about the ocean? If you are interested in science and nature and would like to host a "lesson" or some sort of workshop, you are SO welcome to join our team! We would love help gathering materials/ supplies as well. If you happen to have anything that might fit into the backpack of a nerdy nature explorer, we would love to borrow it! For example: binoculars, books, magnifying glass, nets, containers, a snorkel, whatever we could use to explore the nature at Boesdal.

    • Do you need electricity from the grid? How much in Watts? In the rare case that we get our hands on a microscope that could survive a burn, 20-40 watts

    • Will there be light? Well that depends on if we do any night-time workshops. In that case YES. Otherwise probably not.. or... why the fuck not?!

    • Safety implications We would love to do a bit of snorkeling and get some samples of the seafloor (close to the shore where we all go swimming). This is of course as risky as all swimming activities, and should only be done while super sober. We will make sure to always have someone responsible on land and do a head-count so that everyone who goes under comes up. Nobody has to do anything. Only those who want to and feel like they can handle going in the ocean should. Safety f--third!

    • What is your audio footprint? The ringing of bicycle bells and jubilation of finding rare plant species!
