We live on a planet in flux–warming waters and land, chaotic weather, and unknown futures. Our adaptability is crucial to our survival. In response to this condition, this workshop will explore new tools for sensing, mapping, engaging, eating and responding to our changing environment. Participants will learn about the Tools for a Warming Planet crowd-sourced collection on exhibition and will collaborate on new prototype ideas moving forward. This workshop is part of the exhibition Collaborative Ecosystems for a Sustainable World, presented by the Institut Ramon Llull in collaboration with the .NewArt { foundation;} and Hac Te.
