Session Title: Citizenship: resolving tensions

Together, we aim to debate on and look for answers to the societal issues at stake in the current state of our economically and ecologically over-saturated world.
Citizenship will serve as a guideline in our approach to educational and social practices committed to envisioning the future of design, of the city, and of the planet. We propose a collective reflection on the notion of individual responsibility for all stakeholders - designers, architects, sociologists, urban planners - in order to find solutions to create new patterns of life.
Three languages:
-Together: For education and transmission
-Together: Towards a new participative and collaborative approach
-Together: Towards social ecology as a concrete objective in offering future generations “feasible utopias” which are effective.
Three guidelines for resolving conflicts:
-To get “where”? The question of mobility.
-To get “where”? Redefining growth.
-To get “where”? Towards the creation of new systems.
