Seminar “Engaging Communities in Research”

2019-01-15: invitation to Research Seminar at the Faculty of Architecture – ULB

We are pleased to invite you to the seminar “Engaging Communities in Research. Methodologies for Understanding Today Complex Urban Environments”, which will be held on Tuesday the 15th of January 2019 from 9:00 to 15:00 at the Auditorium V. Bourgeois, ULB Faculté d’Architecture La Cambre Horta, Flagey 19.

The seminar is organized within the framework of the research project “TYCO-WSS-Typologies of Institutionalised Co-production of Water and Sanitation Services in the Urban South”, promoted by Universitè libre de Bruxelles-Architecture La Cambre-Horta and the Université de Liège

It will explore a variety of participatory approaches addressing the interaction between communities and the environment they live in. The objective is to open up a wider reflection regarding the use of participatory methodologies for scientific research. Different methods will be explored, coming from pedagogy and anthropology, artistic disciplines, participatory mapping, which are the main domains of the experts invited to the seminar.
