Transformation Labs, socio-ecological innovation and imagination

May 10, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

BC3 Seminars

Prof. Jesús M. Siqueiros

Institute for Research in Applied Mathematics and Systems at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM)


Transformation Laboratories or T-Labs for short are participatory and innovation processes to foster social-ecological changes towards more sustainable pathways. The idea of transformations is a response to incremental adaptation strategies that aim at maintaining business-as-usual. In my presentation I will talk about my experience as part of the T-Lab project in the urban wetland of Xochimilco, in México city. I will briefly explore the nature of problems addressed by T-Labs and emphasise the importance of political agency and imagination as a core aspect of T-Labs.

This is the first activity organised by the Participatory Processes Task Force. We aim to initiate a long-term conversation within BC3 around the importance and challenges of participatory research. After Dr. Siqueiros talk, we will have a conversatorio with attendees around the question: why participation and engagement are important when we seek transformations through our research?
