Barcelona is hosting its 17th annual BioCultura fair this weekend from 30 April 2010 to 2 May 2010 at Palau Sant Jordi. BioCultura, as you probably guessed from the name and the picture is a fair about and for sustainability and ecological lifestyles. Mamaterra, a fair that runs simultaneously within BioCultura, focuses on the inheritors of our Earth - children.
BioCultura features an interesting agenda of seminars and workshops on the topics of genetic engineering, chemicals/pesticides, environmental issues, water, climate change, health, organic food and even a "chill-out" room for mediation and relaxation. Another big highlight of the show is the extensive sustainable living vendors that will showcase their products during the fair. BioCultura expects 700 exhibitors and 80,000 visitors. The show will feature natural products for hygiene and cosmetics, eco-materials, furniture and housing, renewable energy, complementary therapies and medicines, saving and recycling, ecology, environment, rural tourism, toys, crafts, music, books and magazines. Kids will love participating in Mamaterra's games and workshops that teach children about taking care of the earth and healthy lifestyles.
