Accompanying the Ecological Assembly of Lausanne University

Until beginning 2023, I accompany the University of Lausanne (UNIL) with its ecological transition through workshops for the Ecological Assembly (50 people representative of all users and contributors to the university).

We will open the UNIL Assembly with a workshop around the Myths of the future which offers a very good basis for objectifying and questioning archetypal narratives of the future, in particular those concerning sustainability (economics, modes of living, values, ...). Based on that, we will identify different conceptions of sustainability.

We will then develop scenarios of possible sustainable futures and analyse objectively their benefits and pitfalls. Building on these, we will be able to imagine truly desirable and sustainable imaginaries of the future for University of Lausanne. This will form the basis for a collective proposal to the University direction.
