THEME // 2 SOCIAL SUSTAINABILITY :: kea.dk
Ecoweek

Social Sustainability and Local Empowerment

Social sustainability though often overlooked is one of the central pillars of sustainability and empowerment is about increasing people’s ability to take control of their own life and to partake in society. The North West area of Copenhagen where the cases are situated is one of the most socially depleted areas of Copenhagen and this should be taken into consideration.  It is central to this theme that the people who live in the community should be involved in the case work as they are the people who, if the solution suits their needs, will benefit from and also maintain the improvements that are made to their local environment.
 
With the social sustainability theme you will have to take into consideration the people that reside in the area and how your design will impact them. You will be asked to create designs, projects and solutions that will make improvements to their quality of life and also for the future generations to come.

W 2.1 // Rooftop Farm on HKI (Social-economic enterprise)

Participants should come up with ideas on how to establish a farm on a flat roof on an old industry building with a CO2 neutral solution for watering the rooftop farm. They should take in consideration a wide range of challenges, such as; rainwater harvesting, recirculation of rainwater by renewable energy, plant box systems with irrigation from the roots, landscaping a rooftop farm (construction), access ways to the roof, minimize the emission of rain water to the sewer system etc. Local groups of socially marginalized people and/or people with physical and/or mental disabilities should be responsible for the garden (watering, harvesting, etc.).

W 2.7. // Sangergården / The Edible Garden 3

At the moment, there are many open grass areas at Sangergården, which are not appealing to the residents to use. The goal with this workshop was to create small, protected, oases at Sangergården’s green areas. These oases should invite the residents to interact socially and create a sense of ownership and a stronger community feeling and thereby make the neighborhood more attractive to the residents.
