From 28 June- 2 July 2021, the Living Knowledge Network will host the The Living Knowledge Online Festival 2021 and celebrate together the 21st anniversary of the Living Knowledge Network and the successful ending of the InSpires project. It is a joint effort of Groningen University and international partners. You will be able to see and hear some presentations that were originally scheduled for the physical conference. And participate in a number of workshops and live sessions.

The following 2 workshops will be organized within the framework of the TeRRIFICA project:

Workshop: Citizen-led climate decisions: how to avoid fake participatory processes?
15.30h-17.30h, 28 June
There are a number of demands for citizens’ voice to be at the heart of policy-making through participatory procedures. However, were the key conditions for such a procedure to be really democratic and take into account the informed view of citizens? To fight against the fake participative farces, Sciences Citoyennes and the Observatory of Participatory Practices within Research and Innovation have developed a detailed rigorous procedure that fosters informed expression of citizen opinions, based on multiple contradictory expertises – “Citizens’ Conventions”. The Citizens’ Convention is a participatory procedure aiming at informing people about political decision processes on research and innovation issues. It combines three phases: a prior training (during which a drawn by lot group of 15 citizens are studying), an active intervention (during which these citizens are questioning) and a collective positioning (during which citizens are expressing an advice). This process can be declined at different geographical levels and on many controversial topics. In 2017, Sciences Citoyennes and Global Health Advocates developed a proposal for the EU Commission to organise Citizen’s Conventions for designing the missions of the future Horizon Europe. In 2019, stakeholders from different background and countries gathered to react on how to adapt Citizen’s Convention at different territorial scales to tackle climate change in the Framework of the TeRRIFICA H2020 project.
Speakers: Fabien Piasecki (Sciences Citoyennes) Glen Millot (Sciences Citoyennes) Institute Sciences Citoyennes

Workshop: TeRRIFICA – A co-creative community approach for climate change adaptation
13.00h-15.00h, 29 June
In five input presentations of 10-12 minutes the workshop will give an overview on TeRRIFICA’s community approaches and co-creative activities set up in the six pilot regions and beyond. It will share first findings and experiences from its first year’s multi-stakeholder engagement and co-creation activities. The following discussion with the audience shall explore similar approaches on climate change adaptation in the Science Shop community and discuss pathways and joint strategies for future involvement of citizens in climate change adaptation plans on how:
• to develop action plans on how climate change adaptation measures can be implemented with the involvement of diverse actors
• to transfer these measures to other regions
• to broaden the experience with various cooperation formats, which are suitable to awaken the interest in climate change adaptation in the different target groups.
Speakers: Norbert Steinhaus (WILA Bonn, Germany), Pawel Churski (Adam Mickiewicz University, Poland), Joanna Morawska-Jancelewicz (Adam Mickiewicz University, Poland), Hannah Hoff (University of Vechta, Germany), Marco Rieckmann (University of Vechta, Germany), Glen Millot (Sciences Citoyennes, France), Kate Sposab (Association Education for Sustainable Development, Belarus), Inessa Zubrylina (Association Education for Sustainable Development, Belarus)
