Three successful iCSL events for inclusive agenda-setting
This week three online events took place in the context of the course “Interdisciplinary Community Service Learning: Defining Challenges in a Multi-Stakeholder Context”. Students facilitated dialogue sessions about two topics: the city district of Amsterdam Nieuw-West in times of corona (two events on Tuesday 1 December), and sustainable food systems (Thursday 3 December). In total about 100 people attended the three events combined, with diverse stakeholders represented. The participants ranged from high school students to municipality representatives, and from start-up owners to professors. The goal of the event was to define issues and potential research questions together, as a starting point for future CSL projects. So, many opportunities in the topics of corona and food coming up!
