PKN Barcelona Planting Trees
PechaKucha Night in Barcelona recently teamed up for a new eco project with Tree-Nation in which they are planting one tree for each of its presenters. PKN Barcelona organizer Petz Scholtus explains: Pecha Kucha Barcelona is planting trees: it’s fun, and the trees fight poverty, desertification, deforestation, and climate change. For Vol. 5, we partnered up with Tree-Nation, and from now on every speaker will be given a tree that is planted in the growing heart-shaped forest in the Nigerian desert. The trees are virtually planted over the internet, where you can see it grow, water it, add photos, and connect to other trees and their people while a real tree grows in Tree-Nation’s plantation. Here is a direct link to Pecha Kucha Barcelona’s forest. Check out and join Tree-Nation, the biggest free Internet social network with the objective of planting trees.

The trees are quiet
Your PKNCov organisers are superbusy with various projects at the moment. SO busy in fact, that we have found it impossible to get together to plan our next event(s). Partly this is because all the cultural activity in the city has ramped up since Coventry was named UK City of Culture 2021 and, since most of the organisers work in the arts and culture (and at least 2 of them have been organising festivals in the last month or so) we've decided to give ourselves a bit of a break for the rest of 2018 and regroup in the new year. It'd be great to hear from anyone who thinks they might have a bit of time to donate to helping put these events on - we could probably do with a few more people on the committee to give us a bit more capacity. If you're interested, or you have any really great ideas for a theme, or if you'd like to speak at or curate an event - please do get in touch with us. In the meantime, have a browse through our back catalogue of presentations and let us know what your faves are! Cheers, Janet, Richard, Sarah, Dom and Paul
