Presentation Title:

  • Tools for Collaborative Research in Complex Ecosystems




  • New media is a way to connect diverse communities seeking solutions to the global collapse we are experiencing. The unsustainability of our current environmental, economic, social and cultural practices reveals the extent to which our siloed approaches have failed. Each affected ecosystem represents an entangled web in which many different types of knowledge have a specific role to play. We will address the need to create bridges for the different communities directly affected by the emergence of new problems but lacking a productive communication interface. We will present novel design methodologies for participatory, problem oriented research projects, and ways in which digital communication technologies can articulate and modify dialogues.
