Tools for change
The Tools for Change (TfC, towards a more sustainable, just and regenerative society) we currently experiment with and which are subject to continuous evaluation are the following:
Technical innovation demonstration and experiential illustration, such as the “feeling” to be in a wooden passive house and how this relates to material selection and passive design, skis built from hemp fiber composites, solar roof panels that mimic the traditional stone lose tiles,…
Regenerative Design Talks (RDT), a collaborative workshop series focusing on the interconnected relationship of design, nature, our unique built environment and mountain identity in Ostana and beyond.
Here & Now, an easy-access supportive space (virtual & physical) to exchange ideas, create connections between projects, and learn how to bring sustainability science, design opportunities and creative thinking into our translocal alpine places we call home. It’s about connecting big dreams to the “here and now.”
Serious Play: a way to playfully interact with diverse people to build compassion and connection, and discover joint pathways of action, through reframing "work" as "obligation" to "opportunities for joy and imagination".
Stories of failure. We highlight stories of experiments that did not work out, and why. So to learn from it in a different way than "just" showing what works.
Time: trust building and getting used to changes.
