2-5 April 2020, Free University of Bozen–Bolzano, Italy
BY DESIGN OR BY DISASTER 2020
On our brand new conference web site you find the (almost) complete program, practical information and a call for short presentations. You can register until 20 March 2020.
The key idea of the 2020 edition: Collaborate and learn together on cross-cutting strategies for social-ecological transformation. Therefore, the first day, Thursday 2 April, will be full of inputs by speakers coming from diverse backgrounds, with manifold and (partly) differing ideas and agendas. On the second day all speakers and participants will collaborate in the game-like workshop format Transformation Tables. We believe that we can learn and benefit from each other despite and actually because of contrasting positions and aims. To enable a constructive collaboration we ask the speakers to answer three questions on utopia, criticism and transformation. You can download this doc and enjoy searching for answers yourself ––– in the light of the fact that there are no perfect answers. Please bring your work-in/on-progress to the workshop.

CALL FOR SHORT PRESENTATIONS

INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS & ALUMNI NETWORK SESSION
1 April, 18:00-22:00
There are now various degree programs that deal with social-ecological transformation and the (in) possibility of their design. However, in today’s economic and political landscape graduates, who want to fully focus on transformative work struggle to keep their practices economically viable (›Who pays the rent?‹ etc). This is why we would like to give graduates, alumni and students of transformative courses the opportunity to network and build support structures backed by our all institutions and other allies. Read on and register here. Transformative study programs unite!
The DoD20 team is looking forward to see you soon :) ><
