Temporal Matters Salon

This has been an exciting collaboration so far – between me, representing the International Time Perspective Network and the Celebrating Time, 3rd International Conference on Time Perspective and Creative Roots: Collective Urbanism.

For most part, very outside my comfort zone, but that is why I ventured on this adventure – to explore where and how the psychological theories about time and urbanism issues intersect.

So far we held two Salons at the Cafe Ved Buen. One talk was dedicated to Pace of Life and the other one – to chronotope. The more I read about the chronotope, the more I was getting inspired by this concept and its possible applications outside the literary studies.

You can see my prezi’s from both of the occasions and you’re most welcome to drop by next time! See the schedule and sign up on Eventbrite.

Learn Do Share – Copenhagen 2015

I’m happy to be part of the Lear Do Share event in Copenhagen this year. It is organized by Creative Roots: Collective Urbanism. You can find more information about the event here. It lasts three days: from August 27 to August 29 with the overall theme of Smart Citizens.

Julien Daniel and I are going to lead a workshop on the Day 2: Co.Creative Tactical Day on Social Dilemmas and Smart Citizens.

Join us on August 28 at 15.00 and let’s explore together the following issues:

How do we manage limited resources? Why do we often irrationally act based on our self-interests although it may threaten the long-term survival of the whole group? Why don’t we behave sustainable or environmentally responsible? How do the personal attitudes towards time play a role in this? How to promote cooperation among different stakeholders?
We are going to explore these questions in a role-play game during the workshop and hopefully collaboratively discover some answers to them.

Participation is free, but places are limited! Please sign up on eventbrite.

#TPCPH2016 – looking for sponsors / partners

we have now quite an active group of people who are working on making Copenhagen 2016 happen.

besides the actual input from people, we really need some financial assistance in order to make it happen. thus we would like to extend our request to you – maybe you have a way to send some financial support for this event? we have Nicolas, as our one and only supporter so far – Nicolas’ lab is really dedicated to the TP network and has been supporting both the first conference in Coimbra and the second one in Warsaw. maybe your lab / department / company you’re working for can help us out as well?

the concept for the event is still taking shape, but what I can say for sure right now – it will be different, it will be exciting, it will be extremely inspiring and it will be across many different domains.

so if you want to be the partner of this event or know someone who could be our partner – please get in touch! and if we get many sponsors, then it will benefit all of us – since then we won’t need to charge a huge participation fee! 🙂 and even if you can contribute wilt only a 20 euro or a 100 euro – it all can help! please get in touch!

and we are in support of the sharing economy – so if you can contribute with your time to the event, then, of course, you won’t need to pay any fee for participation, but it will have to be a substantial contribution. get in touch to know more on how you can contribute!

thanks!

looking forward to hearing from you!

cheers,

Anna

TP Network conference 2016 – in Copenhagen

the conference venue for 2016 has changed – in our meeting in Warsaw we announced that it would be held in France, but there was an overlap with another event and thus France will be the host for 2018 conference.

for the moment I’m trying to land a venue here, in Copenhagen. I have some sort of positive feedback, but nothing really certain so far. however, I would like to push in different directions and still aim for Copenhagen to happen in 2016.

I would like to ask for help from the community – I would need a few volunteers who would have the time to help me out, to brainstorm, to work on different proposals and put the program of the event together.

hope to hear from you! 🙂
