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.
