Breaking Silos, Nudging Communities: the SITE4Society adventure

BY SHYAMA RAMANI
@ VOL 36 ON JUN 19, 2018

Shyama Ramani is Professorial Fellow at the research institute United Nations University-MERIT in Maastricht. Her research focuses on the relationships between technology, innovation and their governance for inclusive development. She is also the founder of two non-profit research units ‘Association Un Ami’ and ‘Friend in Need Trust’, in France and India.

Shyama experiences three kinds of knowledge divides today: that between students and scholars in good institutions and the not-so-good ones, that between academics and society and that between truth and fabricated truth.

In her PechaKucha presentation she shows how academics can contribute to societal welfare just through sharing the results of their research in an understandable way.

A Traveling Companion, the Indonesian Youth Conference, and PKN St. Louis at the CAM

Presentations In 2009, Nikki Mansel met a tiny bear during a trip. Since then, it has turned into her most trusted traveling companion, and as you'll see in her presentation (from PKN Jersey Vol. 1), they've been sharing adventures in quite a few countries. Here are details on this presentation by Alanda Kariza, presented in Indonesian at PKN Jakarta Vol. 7.Indonesian Youth Conference (IYC) is an activity planned and organized by youth, and aimed at gathering Indonesia youth to share problems and ideas, enhance their awareness of current issues, and convince the public that youth voices must be heard and taken seriously. IYC consists of two activities that are intertwined with each other: 1. A forum that invites 33 young people aged 15 to 21 years from all over Indonesia to represent their respective provinces at this event. They are expected to be actively involved in communities and networks, respectively, are determined to make a change towards a better Indonesia, and want to start a movement or project in their community. 2. A festival, made up of organized seminars and workshops that can be visited by anyone by buying tickets. Seminar sessions and workshops at the festival are more general, covering a wide range of issues. It invites experts, professionals, government officials, and youth achievement to talk about law and governance, politics, culture, creative industries, information technology, environment, education, health, activism, social entrepreneurship, as well as journalism and media. Posters We have a few new posters on the Tumblr blog today, starting with the poster above for this past Friday's PKN Seoul Vol. 12, which marked a re-launch of the series -- it had been dormant for a few years. Also uploaded are posters for tonight's PKN Fresno Vol. 16 and for next month's PKN Concepcion Vol. 7. Photos Today we point out this photo gallery [Facebook], which covers last month's PKN St. Louis Vol. 9, held at the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis (CAM).

Yesterday

By Jean-Paul Toonen Het was er weer, dat opwindende gevoel van een stille, overvolle zaal en een doodnerveuze spreker met een thema dat zo breekbaar is als glas. Je weet nooit of het weer gaat lukken. En als de avond dan ieders verwachtingen overtreft, is dat een geschenk. Toen mijn dochters nog dochtertjes waren, stonden ze elke week op het podium. Hun Tangramschool in Eijsden trommelde namelijk elke vrijdag de ouders bijeen en liet alle klasgenootjes in het spotlicht demonstreren wat er weer aan liedjes en toneelpartijtjes was voorbereid. Een frappante cocktail van opwinding, plaatsvervangende podiumangst, trots en sentiment borrelde op in je gemoed. Misschien is het diezelfde adrenaline die mensen drijft om met 300 tegelijk naar Ainsi te rijden op een ijskoude winteravond. Terwijl op zaterdag een stad vol kroegen en restaurants lonkt, zit de zaal knotsvol en maakt het gniffelende publiek zich op voor de eerste spreker. Het podium, het licht, geluid en de projecties staan nu eens niet in dienst van beroepssprekers maar van onze eigen amateurs. Mensen zonder podiumervaring, geen spoor van broodwinning en zelden het stabiele zelfvertrouwen in de eigen taal. Als één grote reünie van de tangramschool. Dat is Pecha Kucha. Gisteren, zaterdag 20 februari, ging dat weer geweldig. De Amerikaanse Susan Shaefer was al PK-fan en ontpopte zich nu als een dichtende Diva die moeiteloos de spits afbeet. Haar gedichten zijn van grote klasse en gebracht met Amerikaanse flair. Dus lag de lat meteen hoog, zou je denken. Maar Christianne Rousseau nam het op een geheel eigen manier mooi over, met het opschudden van onze slaapkamers, de vergeten leefruimte in huis. En daarna gaat het snel… elke zeven minuten een nieuw onderwerp, compleet haaks op al het voorafgaande. Catalina Goanta – Master student at the Maastricht Graduate School of Governance – doet een pleidooi voor Scholarships en maakt op gevoelige manier duidelijk welke impact dat op levens heeft. En Mark Post knalt daar een ‘rollercoaster’ achteraan over het slimme gebruik van stamcellen in de vleesindustrie. Het klinkt bijna even futuristisch als hilarisch, maar is nog allemaal echt ook. Ook Eric Joris blikt in de toekomst met vergaande theaterproeven. Eric vertegenwoordigt een van de avontuurlijkste gezelschappen van Vlaanderen met voorstellingen op de grens tussen technologie, theater en wetenschap. Ainsi-manager Fons Dejong raapte de handschoen op om in eigen huis zijn pleidooi te houden voor meer fonteinen in de ‘Euregi-au’. Aan zijn betoog en afgetrainde gestalte kon je zien dat hij nog maar pas de voettocht naar Santiago de Compostella heeft volbracht. Ook opvallend was Mirek Hazer die met een vlammend betoog ten strijde trok tegen het Internet. Koud makende voorbeelden en komische details die ons wat realistischer maken rond de effecten van het web. En dat terwijl politiek dier Nelleke Barning juist pleitte voor de omarming van het authentieke communiceren in blogs en social media. Dus hadden die twee elkaar wel wat te vertellen in de ‘beer break’. Hoe Danielle Bakkes Maastricht tot een eigentijds Brugge gaat verbouwen, zie je vast spoedig in Dagblad de Limburger, want Claire van Dyck en fotograaf Rob Oostwegel waren er ook. Met deze vijfde aflevering haalde het event maar liefst 11 nationaliteiten. En was voor de vijfde keer op rij uitverkocht.
