@julianstirling I understand this issue was phrased like that at Gosh 2018, no? (I didn’t attend) If that’s the case then it is supposed to be broad and open so maybe more people can get excited and start contributing with ideas and then actions. It isn’t something @kshitizkhanal7 only will be focusing on, right? I guess @kshitizkhanal7 was trying to open up the discussion, brainstorm.
There are indeed several points of entry to this issue, so maybe the best strategy, having in mind the diversity of people in Gosh, is not to close it too much, but open it up at the beginning. And then certainly not look for a one-size-fits-all solution for all those in the community who want to engage in related activities.
Personally, I’m interested in immersing students, but also teachers, researchers, activists, and pretty random people with no academic background into making/hacking/non… learning environments where they can actually mingle and see themselves as equals, collaborate to a high degree, etc. We recently wrote with @gpereyrairujo about our experiences trying to do exactly this, and the many hurdles we faced. I’m sure there are many others who have tried this route in the last few years.
