The 47th edition of the Congress of Sciences will take place from August 25 to 27 at the University of Mons - Hainaut (UMH). This year, the theme will be: "A World of Networks...Built over the Past 4 Billion Years".

This Congress is a joint initiative of three teachers' associations: ABPPC (Belgian association of physics and chemistry), Fegepro (Federation of geography teachers in French-speaking Belgium) and Probio (Association of biology teachers). It is the annual meeting of science teachers in French-speaking Belgium.

For the occasion, a member of the IPF will give a talk on Wednesday August 25 from 4 to 5 pm. This talk is entitled "zero emission: from the Princess Elisabeth Station to the Classroom". It will discuss the IPF's two biggest projects for the moment and introduce the public to the zero emission concept that they share.

The three latest pedagogical CD-ROMs that the IPF has created will be available for free to any of the participants of this congress. These CD-ROMs address biodiversity, energy, climate change and the Polar Regions.
