    Our TNOC “Seed Session” event with UrbanA, ECOLISE & Communities for Future will be on Monday 22nd of February at 16.15-17.45 CET. TNOC = The Nature of Cities.

    Translocal adventures in developing an Urban Systems Community of Practice

    About the Festival
    TNOC Festival pushes boundaries to radically imagine our cities for the future. A virtual festival that spans 5 days with programming across all regional time zones and provided in multiple languages. TNOC Festival offers us the ability to truly connect local place and ideas on a global scale for a much broader perspective and participation than any one physical meeting in any one city could ever have achieved. The TNOC festival will take place from 22-26 February 2021.


    An Urban Systems Community of Practice event
    ECOLISE’s “Communities for Future” action platform is supporting local European communities to build a healthier, fairer, regenerative world. The Urban Systems Community of Practice is one part of our ecosystem to support this eco-social just transition. Through experimentation and learning, a beautiful adventure is unfolding. Magical collective visions are emerging.

    What activities will happen during it?
    Building on the methodology developed by UrbanA’s “Community Conversations”, a short presentation is followed by the audience going into small breakout rooms. Groups respond to a specific question, talk together, take notes in a harvest document. Plenary hears main insights from all groups. An online communication space supports the process.

    And beyond the festival?
    We will invite all participants to help develop a wiki entry in our Knowledge Commons. The presentation, plenary and discussion will be videod. Participants will be invited to co create a short blog post to accompany the video. The Community of Practice process has already begun, we hope it grows.

    Payment to participate in TNOC + Our Seed Session
    We encourage everybody to come and participate in the full 5 days of festivity, learning, networking, community building. We encourage people to register for the Festival. If some people have financial difficulties, let us know and we will send you a free discount code.

    TNOC: We want to keep the barriers to participation low. Modest registration fees are meant to facilitate broad participation. Full access is given to all sessions. We hope you will pay to register if you can—events such as ours do cost money to produce”.

    Registration is open!

    Students: $35 USD
    Global South: $75 USD
    Global North: $100 USD

    TNOC: A lot of what we are trying to do with this event is experimental…lots of people, time zones, languages, ways to interact. We might make some mistakes along the way. Please be patient.

    See you soon
