The script for this conversation has been created to allow us to look at current dilemmas from various perspectives in time. The conversation is inspired by the theory and practice of an indigenous community living in the Great Lake District in Canada. Before making important decisions, members of the tribe first consult their ancestors (seven generations back), and then they consult their descendants (7 generations into the future). Building Conversations has developed a workshop scenario to bring a long-term perspective to the discussion. When talking about decisions concerning our neighbourhood, district or city, this perspective is necessary to combine the past and its heritage with responsibility for the future. During the workshop a group interested in the fate of a place meets and moves around the room, taking different points in time as perspectives on specific dilemmas of the present.
