Facilitation and Fermentation - Next Library

Facilitation and Fermentation


How can peer learning and kombucha build a sustainable future?

Dokk1 and P2PU are working together on “Læringsfællesskaber for en bæredygtig fremtid” (Learning circles for a sustainable future), a project designed to connect hands-on, creative learning workshops in the library with the United Nation Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

In this session, you’ll make kombucha in an abridged version of one of this project’s most popular learning circles so far.

Following this will be a discussion on how library staff around the world can facilitate collaborative experiences, build collective knowledge, and improve our own footprints on the world.

Maximum capacity: 30 people
