The Space Encounter Labs
The space encounter labs are exploratory spaces to cross the boundary between formal and informal learning. Understanding that learning involves the experience of the learner provides new opportunities for inquiry that does not separate object and subject or place and person. Participants learn more effectively when they participate in the process of learning.

Complexity Tools Training
We train individuals and organisations in using a broad range of skills and tools adapted to complex sustainability issues. The purpose of using new tools is to allow for accessibility, interaction and inclusive communication of complex information with a broad range of stakeholders. The main topics of the training include diverse type of modelling and information visualization. Note that a specific focus is given to the promotion of participatory processes and open source software.
Decisions about the environment must be made with consideration to the multiple and often conflicting ways that individuals use and conserve resources. We specialise in the development of interdisciplinary models (monte carlo simulation and bayesian models) to support the analysis of integrated systems and better inform complex decision making process. The thrust of our approach is to move toward integrated planning and identification/evaluation of trade-offs and synergies in implementing nexus approaches within a systems perspective. Our approach also stresses the need for integrating areas of disciplinary expertise, the ability to identify and address shared needs of diverse stakeholders, and facilitating tailored analyses over different geographical regions and temporal scales.
