Reflections on TIPC use

This resource demonstrates the high level of diversity amongst various initiatives located within the same region. The resource reveals how experimentation as a method aims to open up spaces to support new, more sustainable practices and facilitate the design, evaluation and enactment of different socio-technical alternatives. It also highlights the roles universities can play as agents of social change, showing that experiments can be existing projects or programs in universities or other institutions that have transformative potential.
