Description The aim of the workshop is to experience the role of an eco-flâneur in the city. The relevance of Walter Benjamin and the flâneur for a critical reflection on sustainability for higher education in management will be highlighted. Strolling is suggested as an alternative pedagogy. Participants will act as an eco-flâneur, detecting the sustainable innovative initiatives in the city. Participants will learn from the bottom-up; instead of looking for illustrations of the theory, the city is an open field ready to discover and to detect what is new.
