First stakeholder lab at the Natural History Museum in Vienna

Co-creative engagement process on Deck 50

As part of the sharing water innovation hub, the first stakeholder lab in the engagement process for TETTRIs started last week at the Natural History Museum in Vienna. Representatives from the fields of art, design and culture, science and research, politics and law, education and social affairs, health, NGOs and museums, participated in building a multi-stakeholder environment.

In a co-creative approach, discussions took place about innovative ways to tackle the most urgent challenges of our time – climate change, loss of biodiversity and global distributive injustice and what biological taxonomy has to do with it. Through transdisciplinarity, a more precise understanding of the connections around water as a resource and as a living ecosystem can be gained. While emphasizing the role of biological taxonomy in these multi-stakeholder settings addressing the Sustainable Development Goals, strategies that can be effective at the levels of awareness raising, cooperation and alliances, and legislation will be developed.
