Talk & tool: Practising futures together – get going here and now

“How to use the virus-induced situation to build up momentum for socio-ecological transformation?” This is the question asked by the students and tutors on the MA Eco-Social Design at the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano during the Beyond Crisis Conference. I tried to answer this question by telling the story of how I try to make this pandemic into a stepping stone from where to leap into ecologically and socially just futures.
Here are the references that I shared:

And here are the methods I used together with Fabio Franz for creating our own resource inventory, which we now use in order to re-design how we structure our life and work in order to create support structures for others, who also want to make ecological and just futures irresistible.
