Our LAAs & the BIOTRAILS Learning Platform
The BIOTRAILS Learning and Action Alliances (LAAs) constitute a total of 6 engaged and inclusive communities comprised of a wide range of key stakeholders in the 4 value chains of the project (cocoa produced in Peru, fisheries and aquaculture in Greece, gold mined in Ghana, indigenous arts and crafts in the Brazilian Amazon), as well as in biodiversity-relevant transformative change themes.
Our LAA Communities
These LAAs aim at fostering a fertile ground for cooperation and learning among involved stakeholders where they can freely share their knowledge and experience without the limitations of existing formal institutional settings. They aim to prioritize the joint development of knowledge and operate without established experts but instead be characterized by a mutual ownership atmosphere promoting co-creation and cooperation to facilitate the identification of enablers for transformative change.
Interested stakeholders may choose to join one or more of the 6 LAAs as those are presented below, when entering the BIOTRAILS Learning Platform.
BIOTRAILS Learning Platform
The BIOTRAILS Learning Platform acts as an online community and social learning space aiming to help support the fruitful collaboration and learning on challenges and opportunities for transformative change and the climate-biodiversity-society nexus management. In particular, the platform helps LAAs members connect, discuss and share experiences with other actors, participate in various co-creation activities of the project and be the first to test the project’s tools, validate our methods and learn different transitional pathways and solutions for a more sustainable value chain.
The platform contains a big community interaction space, providing a live feed, news feed and events sections, while it is organised in the 6 ‘LAAs’, which provide virtual spaces where members of the same LAA can work together on specific themes or challenges. Through the BIOTRAILS Learning Platform, LAAs can transcend geographical obstacles, encourage continuous learning and collaboration in both a synchronous and asynchronous manner and enable collective action towards common goals.
