Connecting Seas Inspirational Talk by Claudia Bode

Claudia Bode, Thing Collective
During the inspirtaional talk Claudia Bode stressed out that marine planning in North Sea and Baltic Sea region is a great challenge and at the same great opportunity. North and Baltic Sea regions are a complex system with its own identity. We should look not only how we work together and how we complement each other. How to understand influences and connections between different pieces in order to coherent plan? How to make a common vision? How do we understand each other? Marine space is volumetric, fluid, constantly changing, without internal boundaries and inaccessible. She expressed the role of different representations that form the greater whole and should form a coherent base of common understanding. Representations allow us to imagine new futures and create common visions.
