SETAC Europe LCA Symposium Social Dinner

Tuesday, 25 September, Transfer 17:45–19:30 I Dinner 19:30–22:30, Schönbrunn Palace

Details and Directions

Copyright: Restaurant Schönbrunner Stöckl & Dinner Theater

The symposium dinner will take place at the Schönbrunner Stöckl, a restaurant located at the edge of the park of Schönbrunn Palace.

The Stöckl is a unique mix of typical Austrian hospitality, imperial clichés and artistic vibe. The owners – an opera singer and a conductor –the diva and the maestro – turned the restaurant next to the imperial palace into a location which surprises and entertains. Serving traditional Austrian cuisine, it is equally frequented by tourist and by locals.

Have a look at their website.

Busses will take participants from BOKU to Schloss Schönbrunn. There we will walk through the park to the Schönbrunner Stöckl restaurant, which should take about 10 minutes (red dotted line). At the end of the evening, participants can make their own way back to the city centre using the nearby underground (blue dotted line). Trains heading towards Heiligenstadt will take you to the city centre.

If you have any problems walking, please notify the reception desk and you will be taken directly to the restaurant.

Note: The Qando app by the Vienna Transport Authority (Wiener Linien) can be downloaded for free and will help you find the best connections to your destination.

Tatjana Rokvic @ SETAC Europe LCA Symposium 2018 

Room SR07

The artist Tatjana Rokvić lives and creates in a small coastal town of Rovinj, situated on the Adriatic coast of Croatia. She has devoted the last ten years of her life to a fusion of her two passions—art and ecology. 

Tatjana Rokvić uses plastic objects, metal, textile, glass and wood collected on Croatian beaches in her work. Besides the important work of removing these objects from the environment, by up-cycling them, Tatjana is drawing attention to the growing pollution that is literally suffocating our seas and oceans. 

There will be a small exhibition of her work during the symposium in room SR07. 

Come and visit Tatjana Rokvic during any lunch or coffee break throughout the symposium or visit her website for more information.
