The fieldlab is an educational program within the Living Station, which takes place on a specific location in Rotterdam or outside the Netherlands. The specific context itself, the experts connected to this location and the stakeholders at hand provide specific input regarding a certain topic. Through experimentation and research on site; dealing with the topic ‘matter’ at hand, students get to know the challenges of this ‘local’ setting. This hybrid and cross-pollinating approach will allow for all current and future stakeholders to connect remotely and reflect on common issues both intimately and globally.
