The Living Lab
On October the 15th the community discussed ways of integrating campus or city-based sustainability related activities and projects into the curriculum, and the potential value of ‘place-based’ activities within the curriculum.
The Living Lab is keen to support such activity and Ross Jones presented the work of the Living Lab. Ross introduced the Living Lab approach and how it can be used to facilitate collaboration and innovation in cities and on the campus. He demoed the Living Lab website (http://universitylivinglab.org/ and discussed what it offers to staff and students. He discussed the key role students can play as agents of change, and how Living Lab is working to facilitate more student-led sustainability projects on campus and in the city.
