We invited more than 20 students and young researchers from different disciplines to Kathmandu, Nepal and took a deep dive into the methods and concepts of transdisciplinary research. Here, participants share their experinces.
The symposium serves as a platform to bring together selected people from academia, grassroots activists, environment entrepreneurs and policy makers for a dialogue about the role and potentials that socially innovative individuals and citizens initiatives have in the sustainability transition of cities.
Central to the Dialogue is to utilize the interactive group facilitation method “Collaboratory”, aiming at engaging relevant actors in a collective visioning process around “big” social challenges.
The Dialogue is sponsored by the Heinrich Böll Foundation India and IGCS, held in collaboration with the Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany.
