Transforming practices

EN | FR - Currently updating

Every experience enacted and undergone modifies the one who acts and undergoes, while this modification affects, whether we wish it or not, the quality of subsequent experiences. For it is a somewhat different person who enters into them.
- Dewey (2015:35)

The aim of our research program is to foster social resilience by focusing on transforming practices and societies. We do so by designing and evaluating in complex socio-technical systems.
