THE FIFTH SEMINAR IN THE SERIES OF SIX WILL TAKE PLACE in Sheffield on 29 January 2016.
This seminar draws attention to collective learning to change and influence ecological behaviour, and empowerment through collaborative design. In the morning there will be key-note contributions from Lucelia Taranto Rodrigues (sharing community energy to build resilience) and Fionn Stevenson (‘collective learning in co-housing’). Then we will be joined by video from California by Betsy Morris and Raines Cohen (introducing a workshop activity on ‘co-developing for ecological living’). Further afternoon workshops and ‘thinkpieces’ cover intersecting themes of ‘retrofit challenges’ (with Mark Parsons), socio-technical challenges, ‘gender challenges (with Jenny Pickerill) and ‘co-designing challenges’.
Applications are now invited for seminar five:
Closing date for applications (the date when we can confirm availability of places): December 18th 2015
