Whole Earth Festival directors are seeking to re-emphasize education throughout the festival.

This year’s event will boast 40 booths devoted to education, compared to 12 a year ago, with topics that include pesticides, midwifery, solar power, electric bicycles — even chess.

Elsewhere, the “Sacred Space” will host introductions to traditional Chinese tea ceremonies (noon, Friday), compassionate communication (noon, Saturday), and singing for people who are struggling, including the dying
(1 p.m., Saturday and Sunday).

The “Experiential Space” will see workshops on topics like medicinal plants (3 p.m., Saturday), collective decision-making (4 p.m., Saturday) and composting (3:30 p.m., Sunday).

Even the “Kids Space” will highlight crafts made with both natural and reused or recycled objects.

Among this year’s featured speakers in Young Hall will be Burning Man co-founder Michael Mikel (2 p.m., Saturday), on that festival’s environmental initiatives, and science fiction authors Kim Stanley Robinson and Michael Blumlein (4 p.m., Saturday) on “Science and Justice.”

At 10 a.m. Sunday, also in Young Hall, the festival will screen the documentary “Flow,” about the growing privatization of fresh water.
