New Project!

I.L.A. Werkstatt
A working group of 15 individuals is going to apply the abovementioned theoretical concept to various categories of need (such as transportation, communication, clothing, food, amongst others) and respective industries (IT, textile, agriculture, automotive, amongst others).
The project group consists of students, PhD candidates and activists alike who will collaborate over the course of one year.
The result of the process will be the publication of one dossier which is envisaged to become a reference book for individuals and non-governmental-organisations active in the corresponding fields.
The project is led by Dr. Tom Kopp from Common Future, as well as Dipl. Ing. Karin Walther from Bewegungsakademie.
