2-Day Workshop: Systems Engineering and Personal Growth

25 Aug 2018 09:30 - 26 Aug 2018 17:30

Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Metropolitan Solutions, Mauritskade 62, 1092 AD Amsterdam


During this 2-day workshop, we will dive into the world of resilient city and circular economy engineering, from an angle of your personal skills & project that you could add to transition.

Currently, the world is undergoing rapid changes: in culture, technology, knowledge, climate, availability of resources, etc. It becomes evident that we as individuals need to act upon these changes together, so to stir them towards a better world, to realize personal potentials and to benefit in the process of co-creation.

In a fun, interactive, creative and user-centered manner participants will get acquainted with scientific approaches to analyze complexity and design solutions. The approach combines methods for participatory innovation and resilient city engineering, designed and tested by Organic Village.

The main aim of this 2-Day workshop it that our participants will go home with:
1. Sufficient understanding of resilient and systems thinking and how to utilize this for personal and environmental prosperity and in so doing leverage existing problems into solutions.
2. A deep understanding of how their personal skills and motivation can be harnessed for the transition towards sustainability within cities.
3. A personal and Project profile that can be used as guidelines, for setting up future projects.
4. A roadmap outlining what next steps to undertake and with whom in order to act as a value network of participants transforming systems into sustainable ones.
