Event Ended This event has now finished.

Edge Hill Station Garden was first re-developed by Metal in 2011. Earlier this year Metal secured financial support from Tesco's Bags of Help initiative to develop a yearlong programme of art, food and gardening. Throughout the course of 2017 they’ll be exploring how public green spaces benefit our day-to-day lives and can drive awareness of environmental sustainability.

As part of this programme Metal, Liverpool is delighted to announce that it will host Paris based organisation, Paléo Energétique for a special edition Future Station event.

Paléo Energétique is an open source, collaborative research project investigating sustainable energy inventions that history has forgotten. From ancient hydraulic machines to solar thermal concentrators, their work aims to inspire engineers, designers, inventors, artists and communities to look back in history for inspiration to solve the urgent environmental issues of today.

Paléo Energétique will give a public presentation of their research and projects, broadening our understanding of historic and present day sustainable energy technologies and innovations.
