Event description

Description

It seems we are in an age of disruption. On the one hand there are serious breakdowns in major 'systems', and on the other, profound personal, societal and global renewal feel almost within reach. Are you interested in exploring these issues, and identifying ways to be part of a positive change?

U.Lab is a free course of online study offered by MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology). It enables participants to join a global community of tens of thousands of social change agents who are interested in changing themselves, their community and the wider world for the benefit of everyone. Over the last three years, groups of people in Scotland came together as ‘U.Lab Hubs’, working through the U.Lab material together and sharing their change making ideas, some of which are now taking shape as projects.

The 8 week U.Lab course starts in September and we are offering an opportunity to try out some of the ideas and tools at a taster session on Thursday 24th August for people who work in Waverley Gate with an interest in learning more.

The taster events are intended as a conversational, informal, and speedy (1 hour) introduction to the world of U.Lab.

We do hope you will be able to join us at the taster sessions, and then perhaps join one of the new hubs to take the u.lab course with a local group.
