Participatory Project: World Cafe: Air, Land, and Water by Marjetica Potrč, part of CITIES FOR PEOPLE NTU CCA Ideas Fest 2016/17

Description

17 Jan 2017, Tue 10:00 AM - 06:00 PM
Behind Block 43 Malan Road

Adopting the World Cafe methodology (an effective format for large group dialogue), the workshop will bring together a diverse group of people including grassroots communities, environmental activists, and other social interest groups, who are engaged with environmental and sustainability issues. In this workshop, participants will hold presentations and discussions on topics of urgency relating to air and water. Participants are asked not only to consider the current state of matters, but more importantly, to project solutions and desires for the next 30 years, from the bottom-up perspective: What can we do ourselves to change the human and environmental conditions of air, land, and water – essential elements and finite natural resources that Singapore residents live with every day but rarely ask questions about. The workshop begins with small group presentations and conversations with each group focusing on one elected topic, after which participants rotate and move to another topic.

The final aim of the workshop will be for the participants to come up with proposals/manifestos for the future and present them to invited representatives from relevant state agencies. Through this workshop, Marjetica Potrč lays a special focus on participation and agency. Individual empowerment, problem-solving-tools, and long-term strategies are key in her approach.
