Aalto LAB Mexico
Aalto Lab Mexico, Action based research informed by Project Based Learning -Platforms, a Creative Sustainability programme.
Practice based learning with a problem base focus…
Aalto LAB was a project idea that had the intention of developing self-organizing platforms, to emerge in various locations around the world, with the potential of developing into yearly programmes, as is the case with Aalto LAB Mexico.
Ultimately, Aalto LABs are exchanges, about making the world a better place to live.
The Aalto LABs’ intend to unite universities, companies, society and cities to work holistically on questions that represent societal issues. There is an emphasis on sustainability, lifelong learning and the sharing of culture involving many levels, across multiple scales.
The aim is to create a real impact with a focus on a specific theme. We understand that meaningful, long term exchange has the capacity to respect the past, present and future. As such, Aalto LABs are about building and supporting sustainable learning and exchange platforms through:
- Longitudinal approaches for appropriate impact
- Creating a deep understanding of “cultures”
- Building life-long learning through relations between people
- Working in multidisciplinary teams
- Thinking big through creating, changing, challenging mindsets
Creating new methodological approaches and tools for teachers and students to use in the future.
