How unexpected! I took part in an Environment and Energy Poster COmpetition the other day. Quite a few participants, all of them from 'real' and scary departments: Chemical Engineering, Life Sciences... The posters were really interesting, and dealt with important issues: producing lighter and more eco-friendly materials, developing tools for city temperature control, communicating sustainanble house design to wider audience... A serious crowd! And yetmy humanistic interest in wine waste proved to be the winning ticket. No bribing was involved, I swear! In the confusion, I thanked Whitney Houston's mother when accepting the first prize checque. Oh dear.
