Geodesign Workshops

Geodesign will be an important tool in preparing the world to respond to this and future pandemics—disease spread and control are inherently spatial, shaped by connectivity, density and carrying-capacity.

We are facing an immediate need to educate more people in geodesign while important changes are occurring in the ways we teach and practice. Of paramount importance is the need to be prepared to enable collaborative and individual teaching and practice among people who are remotely connected via the internet. We in IGC are dispersed teams, and this workshop will also make it easier to collaborate among teams on regional and global studies. Geodesign workshops will be organized around this premise. IGC membership is encouraged but is not a condition of participation in any workshops.

Geodesignhub Workshops: June 2020

Geodesign will be an important tool in preparing the world to respond to this and future pandemics—disease spread and control are inherently spatial, shaped by connectivity, density and carrying-capacity.
 

The focii of the FOUR HOUR workshop will be geodesign change-synthesis via collaborative negotiation, and its dynamic impacts, costs assessment and updating. We will be considering synthesis to reconcile the sometimes-conflicting ideas for the region of Cagliari, Italy, which have been proposed in past studies. We will also consider innovations which are considered likely by 2050. We will undertake a simulated negotiation process to explore developing a consensus towards these alternative futures. 

 

We will be using Geodesignhub (www.geodesignhub.com) for this workshop. The software has been built by Hrishi Ballal and has been used more than 100 times for early studies of contentious areas undergoing pressures for significant change. It is designed to foster collaboration and negotiation among professionals and their clients, and among teams of professionals, especially during the early, strategic stages of design.  It has a simple user interface and there is extensive training and support material. It is compatible with your existing software and data for both its inputs and outputs, and it enables users to collaborate in person and/or over the internet in real time to produce designs and assess them.
