Forest Meetings creates an open, safe, knowledge-based meeting place for discussions about one of the core futures issues - the forest.
In order to address key global challenges, such as climate change and social segregation, there is a need to create innovation beyond new technology. How we collaborate needs to be innovated, as well as how we learn and educate, how we make local and global infrastructures. There is also need for innovation in terms of how we can cope with changes to lifestyles and work practices, how we can understand ourselves as humans in a changing world and which stories we can tell to help us to move forward within Earth’s limits.
In this forest meeting, we will create briefs for innovation starting from the map created in the previous meeting on forest myths and fiction. We will engage with a series of approaches to innovation, from business, science, technology and arts to support us.
About Forest Meetings
The project Forest Meetings creates an open, safe, knowledge-based meeting place for discussions about one of the core futures issues - the forest. By meeting across disciplinary and sector boundaries and by bringing together scientific and artistic methods, we create conditions for new discoveries and insights about how we can be with the forest.
Forest Meetings are hosted by Linnaeus University and the Green Sustainability Knowledge environment and designed by Mathilda Tham, Miranda Moss, Nasra Rashiid, Juliana Restrepo, Åsa Ståhl, Jorge Zapico.
