Ilan Chabay, Flavio Lira and Claudia Schmitt
”Adventures in Creative Design for Sustainable Future”
We will present our explorations on “Adventures in Creative Design for Sustainable Futures”, an online workshop we have set up as an interdisciplinary team in order to foster new perspectives for social learning in complex settings. Applying creativity techniques and reflections on joint values is at the core of the workshop, which aims at triggering transformative learning processes for interactive sustainable development. Besides offering insights into the structure of the workshop and the experiences we have gained so far in conducting it, we will also illustrate some exercises, show creative output generated by a group of participants and discuss our plans to evaluate the immediate impressions and longer-term impact of this form of workshop on the participants.
