16 September, 2017 - The UCL Hydrogen Festival and Pop-Up Eco Cinema
Time: 12:00:00 - 21:00:00
Organised by UCL Chemical Engineering
The UCL Hydrogen Festival is a day of sustainable fun for all ages, hosted in UCL's main quad and revolving around hydrogen energy and renewables in general. The day will consist of a variety of stalls offering interactive demos, workshops and information points. This will range from showcasing London universities' cutting-edge research, to industrial and governmental groups talking about the hydrogen economy. The evening will finish with an open air cinema screening completely powered by hydrogen. Expect to find hydrogen cars to ride in, sustainable food to sample and live music to jive to as well. Hydrogen energy sounds like something from the future, but we plan to bring that future to the now, and have fun in the process.
