In January, percolab is offering a series of gatherings to help you put the human at the center of your work and (why not?) join the revolution of organizations. A learning & networking event in one, light and enjoyable with drinks and snacks after work, to share a few practices that we use at Percolab daily.

#1 (January 23) – Opening. How to open up to new possibilities? Energize your practices to open and close your meetings well.
#2 (January 30) – Emergence. How to respond to what is emerging and live with uncertainty? Adjusting with agility and listening to what is there.
#3 (February 6)- Decision. How to converge on a collective decision that allows us to move forward. Practice consent-based decision making.

Cost: We invite you to engage with the shared economy. (We openly share the costs associated with running the event, and as a group we share those costs and look at value openly. The last time we hosted an evening workshop like this people contributed between $15 and $50)

Un territoire comme un commun

“Le Collectif des Garrigues a pour finalité de rassembler et de valoriser les expériences et les connaissances sur la garrigue, de contribuer au rapprochement des acteurs du territoire, et de susciter la réflexion sur le futur des garrigues, préservant et développant les spécificités de ce territoire, dans le respect des milieux et de sa vie citoyenne.”

nadineNadine Jouanen de l’équipe percolab, basée à Montpellier, France, emmène notre travail dans le Collectif des Garrigues. Le dernier webzine du collectif a fait un zoom sur Nadine. Le voici, reproduit ici :

Quel est votre lien avec le Collectif des Garrigues?
J’ai découvert le Collectif à mon arrivée ici en 2014. Je renoue avec ma région d’origine après 30 ans passées ailleurs dans le monde! Il m’aura fallu tout ce temps pour découvrir que mes racines étaient plongées profondément dans la garrigue. Ma jeunesse, passée à Nîmes, a ancré en moi ce paysage, les odeurs de thym et de pin, les caillasses et les vignes. Manu et David sont venus me chercher pour participer au bureau en 2015 et j’ai dit oui sans hésiter tant l’intention du Collectif des Garrigues colle à mes valeurs, ma vision de cette région et de l’animation citoyenne, multiple dont a besoin un territoire.

Que pouvez-vous apporter au Collectif et que vous apporte-t-il en retour? 
J’espère pouvoir apporter un surplus de participation, puisque c’est une compétence forte que je suis soucieuse de propager autant que possible. C’est la raison pour laquelle je travaille souvent avec l’équipe pour préparer le déroulé des ateliers, les rencontres, les forums et faire en sorte que l’intelligence collective se manifeste à plein. La reconquête des biens communs, et la gestion de nos communs est un autre axe important pour le Collectif et j’aimerais que mon action au plan national et international ait un impact positif pour une meilleure reconnaissance du Collectif comme acteur clé pour notre territoire sur ce sujet sensible et tellement important.
En retour, le collectif m’apporte une meilleure connaissance, profonde, multiple et transversale de ce bout de terre qui me tient à cœur.

Quel projet vous motive le plus?
Je crois que c’est le projet global, c’est à dire le croisement entre tous les projets du Collectif. Cette vision du territoire dans toutes ses dimensions: géographique, humaine, économique, historique, culturelle… Je le vois bien en ce moment, où un nouveau groupe, Patrimoine et Arts Vivants est en train de se former et que je suis ravie d’accompagner. C’est formidablement enrichissant et c’est une chance incroyable que de pouvoir participer, modestement, à la reconnaissance de notre Garrigue et à son développement harmonieux. Je le dis souvent: vous vivez ici, adhérez et venez participer à nos chantiers, vous n’allez pas en revenir!

The Metamorphosis of the Insectarium

Montreal’s four nature and science institutions, the Biodome, the Insectarium, the Botanical Gardens and the Planetarium, are collectively known as Space for Life. The largest natural science museum complex in Canada, Space for Life is committed to protecting biodiversity and to citizen participation.

Metamorphosis is the Insectarium’s ambitious renewal project that aims to offer visitors sensorial experiences and novel encounters that deepen the human/insect relationship.  The Insectarium invited percolab to develop a co-design process that would lead to a pre-concept for its Metamorphosis. Sessions were structured around five themes (biomimicry , senses/embodiment, scale/spaces, time/cycles, visitor/actor) and engaged participants (both internal and external to the Insectarium) to arrive at an inspirational vision for the new Insectarium.

Improving the Design of Learning, Technology and Space

Client: Université de Montréal, Faculty of Environmental Design 

Establish a vision and action plan to improve the physical and digital environments of the Environmental Design Faculty (architecture, urbanism, interior design, landscape design, industrial design) so as to better support learning and the faculty. The action plan includes elements for the short term that can be accomplished within the existing building as well as long term priorities that could be implemented in the future building/site.

Given that the technological plan of the faculty needed updating and at the same time there are plans for the faculty to move to a new site a new vision process was put in place that integrates the two.

Innovation/challenges:

  • A systemic approach that integrates pedagogical practice and organisational model, technological tools and environments and physical space
  • Inclusive participatory approach involving students, staff and all five departments

Percolab role:

  • Design, facilitate, document a series of workshops to support the emerging of a common vision and action plan with the committee
  • Consultancy to identify and document inspirational practice
  • Observation, interviews and workshops within the faculty.
  • Installation of an online space for the project
