Six young researchers working with engaged citizens to create mutual learning for better neighbourhood living.
As we’re approaching week 5 of our applied-research-meets-grassroots-initiatives programme, we want to share the profiles of the six fellows we’re prototyping this live learning set-up with.
We’re excited to have this multidisciplinary mix of bright young professionals with diverse and complementary interests as our first generation of fellows. Their critical and creative input is essential in making this first iteration of the programme a rich learning experience.
As promised, we’ll use this blog to give updates about our journey creating this pilot edition of a live learning programme. A post about the first sessions, which introduced some theoretical and methodological notions to ground our work in, is coming up next. After that, one about the first field explorations and the prep work for a key moment: meeting the engaged neighbours who have self-organised into a civic initiative group and are working to make their neighbourhood a better place to live.
