Thinking Txoko

Thinking Txoko >>>

The Thinking-Txoko is an innovative alternative space at the  ICOT 2015 . 

The  will be situated in the main hall of the conference and it will gather different speakers and professionals to discuss certain themes of the conference.

By being in an open space there will be more freedom and opportunities to interact, listen, ask and debate for the attendees. 


During the days of ICOT2015 we will open a "TänkBar" (a venue with thinking on the menu) in connection to interesting lectures and sessions.

In a tasty and visual environment between keynote and featured sessions , we want to help the participants to reflect on what they just have heard in presentations or experienced during workshops.

During coffee breaks and lunches, we will therefore "enhance" the usual café and restaurant environment with various visual aids and tangible thinking tools to help participants to think together while eating or taking a coffee."

50 person per session permited.

Cost: FREE

Language: English

See pdf >>> for more information.

Schedule of the presenters that we follow up in TänkBar:

"Einstein noted that the 'Theory determines what we observe'. Can the economy be modeled on different assumption, from a different perspective? Of course. The existing 'linear' economy is merely a reflection of an era when resources, energy and credit was cheap and easy. Now the world has changed and so too must our economy. Using insights from systems thinking reveals the possibilities for a new era of prosperity. The enabling conditions, the rules of the game have to be aligned to emphasize rebuilding natural capital, radical resource efficiencies and new business models which garner the advantages of 'circularity' while decoupling from the resource base progressively. The example systems condition change here will be shifting taxes from people (labour) to non renewables (resources)."
