They do this by leading multidisciplinary collaborations, which you may know as Learning Communities, CoPs (Communities of Practice), Fieldlabs, and Living Labs. Here, education, business, and government come together to work on the sustainability of neighborhoods. It is driven by demand and action-oriented. The Webber plays a key role in shaping this new landscape. To support and learn from each other in this endeavor, the Webber community was launched in November 2020. There are now over 60 active Webbers in the community.
The profile of a Webber
- initiates movement with a higher purpose
- works collaboratively based on inclusive values
- creates an environment for innovation and learning
- has the mandate to organize decision-making
- operates freely within and between organizations at different levels
- creates a platform (digital or physical)
And thus brings together science and practice, education and industry, citizens and government in a movement of collaboration, learning, and innovation.
