The emerging messages from the sessions
Science should and, nowadays, can be accessible to the society. We’re looking for open processes working as bridges, where both scientists and citizens are involved.
Science is a multidisciplinary power making positive changes possible. It’s moved by curiosity of understanding complex systems: human and the contexts where we’re living (society, earth). It’s based on structured methods and a specific common language, not always understandable or usable by people outside of the scientific bubble.
A smart practice combines different elements to create something new for a specific context with a specific need.
Main output of a Scie-Citizens action should have the following features: Open Source, accessible, circular use, process based, building new relations and based on scientists-citizens collaboration.
LEGO Serious Play takes the process further to apply the concepts defined in the World Cafe to the context of our project. Scie-Citizens smart practice in a storyline:
“There is a change of status that triggers the exploration of the new situation and learning about new opportunities. During the process, it appears there’s something you don’t know about the situation and the goal is to define a desirable outcome. To reach it, you always need different resources and cooperation to go further and build bridges.”
