Design Workshop for Post-Conflict Sustainability Labs
On 11 February 2016, the International Institute for Industrial Environmental Economics (IIIEE) and the Center for Middle East Studies (CMES) at Lund University are organising a joint initiative on the theme: “Conflict and Violence in the Middle East: Far away but close to home” Creating spaces for hope and a better future through Post-Conflict Sustainability Labs
The purpose of the workshop is to explore and discuss roles for higher education institutions to contribute to addressing the current migration challenges through providing spaces for innovation and visioning of post conflict & Sustainable re-building of distant homes while at the same time engaging and building capacities among the community of displaced scholars and students.
The outcomes will feed into the design of an extended learning experience for integrating displaced scholars and students based on visioning spaces and sustainable development goals (SDGs), addressing these questions:
- How can sustainability visioning labs be leveraged as instruments for capacity building and accelerated learning?
- How can visioning labs be used to generate alternative narratives that instill hope, avoid marginalization and disappointment, and shape mindsets that embrace for post-conflict sustainable futures?
Participants are invited from various departments at Lund University and other national and international stakeholders including networks working with displaced scholars.
