The workshops are your opportunity to act! Here you will get the chance to engage in interesting discussions, apply new tools and develop solutions together with your peers.
There will be a workshop session both Saturday and Sunday, so you will get the chance to participate in two different workshops. You select the workshop when you buy the ticket.
When we were children we explored and developed all sorts of skills. We imagined ourselves to be doctors, policemen and thieves, an adventure in the forest or in the grand outer space. We developed a multitude of skills and kept improving ourselves in different fields of education. However, as of now, we are usually specialized in a very limited tasks. For most people, whether you are an artist, manager, doctor, phoner or CEO, the job market gives us only the option of specializing. We are cogs in a large complex machine intertwined across the global world.
How does this greater logic of the productive job market limit and/or enhance our ability to care for ourselves, each other, our environment and the things we hold dear? And what would it be like, if that limitation was lifted off our shoulders with Basic Income? That is what we are going to explore in this workshop.
The workshop will be conducted by Barb Jacobson in cooperation with BIEN (Basic Income Earth Network) Denmark and OverskudsSamfundet.[/fusion_tab][fusion_tab title=”Work-life Balance” icon=””]Historically, we have collectively fought for some major gains in the area of improved work-life balance such as parental leave, leave of absence and pension schemes. Still many people are stressed at work and find that they do not have enough time to be together with their children.
How would a more flexible worklife look like? Would be work shorter hours while having young kids? Stay longer at the labour market? Share our work more equally? Take a break from working life – without other reason than the personal urge to do so?
Drawing on the insights from Valerie Bryson’s keynote speech, this workshop will explore the topic of work-life balance further in an interactive session that demands curiosity and cooperation skills. The workshop will be led by Fællespladsen and Climate Leave. Fællespladsen is a work-at-home-with-your-children initiative that seeks to break down the walls between work and family life, while Climate Leave is an initiative that encourages people to take a leave from work to “cuddle the planet” and do other things of societal value than contributing to the money economy. [/fusion_tab][fusion_tab title=”Sustainable Urban Development” icon=””]Great news! The sustainable city, the green city, the low-carbon city, the healthy city, the caring city, the creative city, the emotional city…. are all the same place, and we can all co-create it everyday. Let’s explore together how collaborative, open urban development processes not only contribute to create vibrant urban designs, but also support empowerment, mind-shift and sense of belonging. And what a better starting point that doing so on a concrete meaningful case, the place where we are here and now… Let’s hack CBS masterplan!
The workshop will be held by Anaïs Lora and Fruzsina Stefan, from Creative Roots Studio.[/fusion_tab][fusion_tab title=”Biomimicry” icon=””]How can nature inform design and contribute to social innovation? Come and find out in this fun and hands on workshop! We will be exploring how we can see nature in a different way and learn from it to innovate sustainably. Get a sense for what biomimicry is and experience how powerful and flexible this framework is, stretching from technological to social innovation.
The workshop will be conducted by Michel Wolfstirn from Biomimicry Norway in cooperation with Camille Fong.[/fusion_tab][/fusion_tabs][fusion_tabs design=”classic” layout=”horizontal” justified=”yes” backgroundcolor=”” inactivecolor=”” bordercolor=”” class=”” id=””][fusion_tab title=”Urban Composting” icon=””]More than 30% of our household waste is compostable and can be used locally to grow plants and vegetables, greenify gardens, backyards, balconies and other areas in the city. Instead of buying soil which either has been transported from far away or removed from fragile ecosystems with the result of leaving desertlike areas, you can produce your own soil from your waste.
This workshop helps you get started with composting yourself and focus on how you can start composting where you live. How can you reuse your organic green waste as compost to make it more green and edible where you live. How do you maintain your compost and what and where do you use it afterwards? We will also talk about the role of green waste in our cities and how we can share our green waste as compost locally between institution, companies, housing and make our city even greener. The workshop will both be practical, where we will be getting our hands dirty but also discussing more complex themes around green waste, cities and legislation.
The workshop is run by Kompostbudene, a green, socio-economic initiative that wants to help people get started with separating and repurposing household waste while empowering local citizens throughout the process. Kompostbudene is working to make Copenhagen more sustainable by rethinking what we do with our green waste, and at the same time providing jobs for socially disadvantaged citizens living in the city. [/fusion_tab][fusion_tab title=”Zero Waste” icon=””]In every single production process there is a need for energy and resources, yet many goods end up only being used once. This is especially the case for packaging of hygiene and cleaning products and of single-use take-away food items. In this workshop we want to inspire and help you to see where and how you can reduce the waste in your household. You will also get the chance to make one of the many easy zero waste products you can do by yourself. If you want to know how many things a mason jar can be used for, how to make our own cleaning product or in general just get some ideas how to walk the talk, this is the workshop for you.
The workshop is held by Zero Waste Denmark – a network of zero wasters who want to reduce waste in the household and outside. Their aim is an empty waste bin.[/fusion_tab][fusion_tab title=”Complementary Currencies” icon=””]Bristol Pounds, La Puma in Spain, Chiemgauer in Germany, VTaler in Austria. In Europe and the world it is becoming more and more widespread and recognized to create new monetary networks that complement national currencies. Depending on the context the purpose of creating such a currency is manyfold but often related to achieving certain monetary, economic, ecological and social outcomes in local, regional or national spheres.
The workshop will address the following questions: How can local currencies support the development we want for our economy and/or community? What are the challenges? And what does it take to start a local currency?
The workshop is based on both knowledge/theory about complementary currencies and empirical examples. The workshop is conducted by Axel Haufe and Pernille Gøtz: Both active in the Gode Penge movement and involved in establishing local currencies in respectively Djursland and Copenhagen. Building on the cases Djurs and Københavner Stakater we will discuss possible outcomes of a local currency in the countryside and a big city. Also, we will try to bring insights from the keynote speeches into the discussions.[/fusion_tab][/fusion_tabs][/three_fourth]
