Geodesignhub provides technology for "facilitated negotiations" over the future of a space. After this course, you will learn about setting up, administering and conducting a geodesign project using Geodesignhub.
Management of our lands, rivers and seas is a increasingly contentious problem and one that necessitates negotiations. Facilitating these negotiations is a important skill that is increasingly in demand. Mediation is about working with people to understand their position and develop their powers of negotiating and achieve outcomes where every one wins. In this course, you will learn how to setup a Geodesign problem for successful negotiated outcomes. This course is for people who are interested in understanding the principles and practices of "facilitated negotiations" using digital technology.
The “future of a place” is a very complex and
challenging problem. There are many forces that need to be balanced: social
changes, economic shocks, natural disasters, political environment etc.
Administrators who manage the place face a difficult problem making decisions in this complex environment. Geodesignhub provides a way forward by providing digital technology to facilitate negotiations and develop a consensus among the different stakeholders. It also provides sophisticated analysis and project management tools to support the decision making.
Geodesignhub covers all the foundational elements of geodesign: How does the study area operate? How to define it? How to assess if it is working well? How might it be altered? The impacts of these changes and finally how to facilitate negotiations aver the futures? Once a negotiation is concluded, how do you manage the execution of it? Geodesignhub provides a practical, easy to understand way to get started with Geodesign. Start your geodesign journey with Geodesignhub!
