Staying relational in conflict

Julia Schaeper, PhD candidate, University of the Arts London

Experio Lab is inviting to the Experio Seminars. Once a month we’ll invite interesting researchers to talk about service design, service logic and user-driven services in public sector.

In a world facing converging crises such as climate change, conflict, and social injustice, the need for radical change has never been more pressing. Many scholars predict that we are moving from a ”poly-crisis” to a ”permacrisis” where crises feed off each other, exacerbating social and environmental challenges. These challenges are also linked to a failure of design, prompting designers to ”redesign design” practice. In this talk, Julia will explore the applicability of the commons to service and systemic design, proposing ”Commoning by Design” as a way to transition systems from dysfunctional to more regenerative. By facilitating improved cooperation among system actors, this approach aims to hold space for conflicting planetary stakeholder needs, motivations, and objectives, staying relational through a plurality of voices. Join the seminar for a thought-provoking discussion on how we can draw inspiration from the commons to create more intentional, careful, and collaborative solutions for a thriving future.

The seminar will be held in english.

October 20th 08:30 – 09:45 on Zoom

The seminar is free of charge and open for everyone who register below.
