BOTTOM UP APPROACH
The project structure is built to develop and foster learning in a series of ways. It follows a bottom up approach, focusing on the role of the civil society, academia, and the private sector within feasible visions of 2 – 1.5 futures. It seeks to build networks of people that collaborate and share ideas around a vision of 2 – 1.5 futures in specific places both within and across countries. The networked design allows each country team to embed solutions in specific contexts, while allowing for diversity of thought, multiple approaches and for a greater number of minds to work together on the same questions. A bottom up approach also allows to take into account the role of culture. Culture (and place) provides meaning and character to practices, and allows persons and groups to speak about how these practices can be excellent and good – or bad, unfit for purpose or lacking somehow- in different communities. Moreover, it also provides a decentralized approach to increase the range of policies and practices that are identified and pursued.
