You are welcome to visit the prototype Flytevi - Sweden's first urban marine community garden, where we grow mussels and algea in the river. You can also meet researchers from the University of Gothenburg and Chalmers University of Technology focusing on how we can ensure sustainable transport at sea, with minimal impact on the marine environment. 

Come and taste the future food from the ocean, and discuss how to get a healthier ocean with our researchers and collaborators! 

Find your way here

We recommend walking, biking or taking public transport. The nearest stops are Frihamnsporten and Frihamnen (good to know is that there is a stair up and down to the stop Frihamnen). In addition to this, during the days of the festival, there will be an electric ferry going between Stenpiren and the site, free of charge.
