We are planning an open door day of the Swiss research institute PSI in Villigen Switzerland for the general public and expect about 8000 visitors. A major focus will be put on presenting our research activities many involving chemistry. However, we would be grateful to receive also further ideas, how chemistry can be presented according to the slogan "Chemistry - our life, our future" to a general public.
