1. Thomas Ermacora on Micro-Urbanism
Thomas rapidly wraps up how design as a tool can be utilised as the link between participation and technology, how with an increased complexity in the world around us a multidisciplinary approach to problem-solving might be the way forward and emphasises the importance of scale in terms of catering for people dynamics in transition processes.

He also suggests how a Walled Garden is one way of seeding a community heritage and transition project. This is a project Clear Village is getting involved in just outside of London in the near future.

On Monday 28 February and Tuesday 1 March, CLEAR VILLAGE went to to deploy our co-creative process in the Swedish City of Helsingborg. Our great collaborators, Helsingborg City Theatre, offered themselves as a Hub for all citizens and activities, which will foster positive change in the region. In this context, our DYNAMIC DIALOGUES LAB co-creative process explored how the Theatre can anchor and catalyse the cultural aspect of change –and quite simply stay open the diverse community in Helsingborg.
Nearly 50 participants from all parts of the city, different agegroups (well, we did not have kids there this time), different genders, religious backgrounds and professions took an active part in our DYNAMIC DIALOGUES Lab, focusing on a collaborative vision for Helsingborg’s future by letting every participant unveil his own one, fuelled by aspirations, wishes and potentials.
