Workshop structure

Topics such as: imagination and percepcion, public wellbeing, art and science, social engagement,  sustainability and urbanism were discussed through the lenses of humanities, sciences and arts, joined in a two-phased scheme:

i-ii— Thinking phase. Which was meant to turn information into meaningful information into healthy city ideas, while building trust amongst the group. Dérives through the neighborhood took place in this phase.

iii-iv— Doing phase, of specialized working units which turn conceptualization into design into a project. Throughout the whole process, we got involved with the community of the neighborhood.

Workshop dynamics

Each session built its own interactive process in order to turn conversation and perception into ideas. Then ideas into a feasible multi-dimensional project.


The group consisted of 22 Health science students and 21 guest participants: 18 to 24 year old Health science students (of biology, chemistry, chemical engineering, medical doctors, psychologists); and invited citizens, including scientists & researchers (from ecologists to astronomers to social scientists), artists & designers (from literature to performing arts to architects), social workers & public space managers.
