Join our 3rd CoAct hangout 2022 – Decolonizing our educational/institutional influences

Join our 3rd CoAct hangout 2022 – Decolonizing our educational/institutional influences

On June 23 we will meet for the 3rd out of 5 hangouts. This time we will discuss how western and non-western scientists can liberate ourselves from western institutional ‘instructions’.

“Talking from an African scientist context, our role as social scientists has to be being the ‘pacemaker’, in order to establish good connections between our own mythology and the western knowledge learned in school and academia. The biggest challenge for African scientists, who have been trained in western institutions, is to liberate themselves from western instructions in order to be able to understand what people locally are saying and seeing. How can we approach this for western scientists trained in western institutions?”

Time: June 23, 2022 02:00 PM CEST (Amsterdam, Berlin, Rome, Stockholm, Vienna)

The Global Innovation Gathering is a consortium member of the Horizon 2020 project ‘CoAct – Co-Creating a Citizen Social Science Approach’. Within CoAct, one of our goals is to foster a critical debate, addressing what Co-Creation, what inclusive approaches, and what science should look like when accounting for multiple voices, needs, and traditions from all around the world.

Throughout the year we are going to host five hangouts discussing central topics the community identified. You can read more here

These hangouts accompany a process of co-writing that brings together all our critical understandings to inclusive Citizen Social Science from a gloCal perspective. Would you like to become a co-author? Please reach out to us via
