Participatory Lithology presented on S+T+ARTS.eu

S+T+ARTS is a European Union initiative focused on the promotion of projects where science, technology, and arts are integrated to raise awareness of the societal challenges and global concerns we are facing (see the starts.eu site for details).

starts.eu published an article about participatory lithology, presenting it as ” a rocky initiative launched by pibinko.org network” (and with the Metalliferous Hills Jug Band side of our project we are honoured about the “rocky” reference).

The article is availavble from this link.
