Ecocultures 2012– reaching towards sustainability through artistic practice, Presentation/workshop, Essex University, Colchester, UK, 17-18th April 2012
Participated in a panel at the conference Ecocultures 2012, together with Oleg Koefoed, Natalia Eernstman, Karen Blincoe and Lucy Neal. We explored futures thinking, artistic practice and imagination in relation to learning for sustainability. We addressed questions like: Do we have to plan from or for the future? How we foster futures thinking? How can art facilitate or catalyze this process? How can we stimulate the envisioning of different and positive futures in communities? And how do we proceed from the mere imagined visions and ‘good’ intentions to actual realization and steps in the right direction?
