Abstract

Enabling students to become changemakers and integrating sustainability as lifestyle in higher education is a priority. It requires a safe space where students can experience their journey within a healthy environment, which can fill a gap in theory and practice and connect them with nature, society and self. Visualizing the relationship of ME and WE, and a pathway for changemakers has been developing from previous action researches (Chung 2015 and 2018) presented in RSD5 and RSD7. This study proposes a visualized relationship between ME and WE to support changemakers’ pathway and showcases its experimental application through a project, Co-Designing Food Revolution for Social Change action research team at Zayed University in the UAE. It further explores a ME=WE framework, changemaker pathway and systemic pathway through co-designing a small scale food system in the immersive learning environment, the garden. A narrative of the concept development and the project pathway was visualized in the gigamap presented in RSD9. This paper discusses the findings and reflection on a ME=WE pathway unfolded with the KULNA project. The intention is to share the learning outcomes of the co-designing pathway for KULNA community garden project and the process of prototyping a future scenario.
