How can we build future-oriented neighbourhoods in Wageningen, where residents are happy to live, work, and move, while also addressing the complexity of societal issues? Society Based Education (SBE) is part of a learning ecosystem dedicated to finding answers to these questions, in a process of co-creation of Wageningen’s Neighbourhoods of the Future.
WUR is collaborating in a 3-year grant trajectory that runs from May 2023 until April 2026, with the municipality of Wageningen, the bblthk (public library), Impact organisation Thuis, and the Food Valley Region. We are working together to establish a learning ecosystem where you can collaborate and learn from societal challenges within the city and its region - whether you're a student, teacher, resident, community partner, or a Wageningen-based business.
Within WUR, different teams are collaborating to create this learning ecosystem: SBE, the Science Shop, Citizen Science Hub, and WUR researchers and teachers who are conducting research locally and/or using local real-life cases in their teaching practices.
Neighbourhoods of the Future
As a collective, we will work programmatically on the theme 'Neighbourhoods of the Future' by bringing people together to co-design tomorrow’s neighbourhoods in Wageningen and its region. We want to foster long-term collaborations and involve a diverse array of stakeholders to tackle the theme from different perspectives.
