Crowdfunding opportunity - support science and communication

Weather + station

Contributing to the Mountain Research Initiative's Global Network of Mountain Observatories (GNOMO), we are building a new "fluid mountain data monitoring station" at Serre Lamboi, the MVI campus. Part of this is a professional weather station, collecting classic weather data plus monitoring air quality by particulate matter (PM) sensors. All data, including live webcam images towards Monte Viso, will be open access so everyone can benefit from this climate science and communication project. Your financial support enables the MVI Association to cover the costs for this new station and web service.

MVI is an open innovation ecosystem - a real-world laboratory for research, education, entrepreneurship and new living - on sustainability transitions and regenerative design for a more resilient and just society

DSC08289-1024x683

Let's re-think and re-design how we want to live now and in the future. Resilient, regenerative, blending local traditions, regional resources, and global openness.

“Design has the leverage to address complex challenges of global scale with place-based inclusive responses at the intersection of ecology, anthropology, and systemic innovation.

"We weave bridges and build synergies between people, projects, ecosystems, and economies, between theory and practice - with the common goal to create net-positive impact."

Tobias Luthe, co-founding director

12th RDT Regenerative Design Talk

SYSTEMIC

CYCLES:

A new way of weaving and activating
bioregional supply chains

Un nuovo modo di tessere e attivare
filiere bioregionali

This in-person Regenerative Design Talk revisits MVI’s “Systemic Cycles” multi-day sustainable bicycle tour of circular supply chains within the Piedemonte, held back in August 2021. Join us for a video screening of the tour, presentation of the Politecnico di Torino students’ publication and an open design workshop to explore ways of expanding “Systemic Cycles” into a longer term collaboration initiative.
We warmly invite both our local and regional partners who participated in our tour, as well as others who may be curious about getting involved in creating more sustainable, circular bioregional supply chains.

Participants will receive a printed copy of the Politecnico publication, including vivid, detailed maps of the Piedmonte supply chains as well as high quality photographs of the tour, including portraits by Frederique and Martin.
