On 8 -10 May 2019 another Marie Skłodowska-Curie innovative training network focusing on sustainable place shaping, SUSPLACE held its final event in Tampere, Finland. The event explored the topics on ‘Exploring Places and Practices through Transformative Methods’. RECOMS fellow Ruben Vezzoni also took part and compiled a piece of writing on his experience and thoughts.
"What is then the right approach towards complex problems? Instead of focusing on answers, the attention should be put on the specific inquiries from which they derive. The SUSPLACE FINAL EVENT has been a sort of Socratic session. The right questions, rather than accurate answers, have been the key findings of the whole conference. The various formats adopted during the event – like dilemma sessions, the collective place-shaping puzzle, practice sessions, and the overall knowledge harvesting collection of insights – were all meant to establish reasoned arguments through a dialectical method."
