Evolving from the main subject of the Sun and its cultural, biological and astrophysical influences, this event aims to explore the new culture promoted by renewable energies, with a special emphasis on solar energy.

Aside from panels and open debates directed to an knowledgeable, active audience, NOW will also organize workshops for high school and university students, raising awareness on these issues and allowing them to get a deeper, hands-on knowledge.

This edition is also part of the project NOW in action, were the film "The 11th Hour" will be screened in several Spanish universities, with a presentation and open debate.
