Are you a faculty, staff or student on the Twin Cities campus looking for inspiration to start a campus climate project? Do you want to explore your project with other people who care about campus climate? Are you seeking fresh insights that could help you kick-start implementation of your idea? Or do you simply enjoy listening to other people's ideas with an open invitation to share your story, knowledge, insights, and opinions?
If yes, you are invited to attend a Campus Climate Design Lab. Two sessions are being offered and you may attend one or both. These free sessions create an opportunity for those who have ideas/projects for improving our campus climate to connect with others who are interested in sharing knowledge, experience, and connections to help move ideas forward. Whether you come with an idea/project or come to offer your insights to others, everyone will walk away feeling energized, inspired, and enabled to take intentional next steps.

The Design Labs are Greater Than 7 events hosted by the Campus Climate Core Planning Team that brought you the World Café and Open Space events of 2014-15. We week to raise awareness of campus climate issues; evoke an empathetic human response to sense the kind of environment that our campus is calling us to co-create; bring diversity into conversations so that learning, creativity and innovation are heightened; and energize networks of motivated people who are taking action where they are. We believe that through our collective actions we can create transformational change.
