Marine CoLAB #1

Started: Jan. 15, 2015, 10 a.m.
Ended: Jan. 15, 2015, 9 p.m.


On 15 January 2015 a group of 16 people came together for a day-long workshop at the Gulbenkian Foundation in London to co-create a range of scenarios for Marine CoLABoration. The aim of the workshop was for participants to get to know each other as creative individuals and glimpse their shared vision(s) for the initiative. Consideration of the oceans inevitably surfaces many 'big' problems, which need multiple perspectives brought to bear to incite meaningful change. Thus the workshop explored the nature of value, economic and social assumptions which impact the significance and complexity of the issues involved. Scenarios were developed which explored more sustainable economic and governance systems as the world experiences continued effects of climate change.
