A Solutions Lab, or “Social Innovation Lab” as they are often called, is an approach to addressing complex, and deeply rooted community challenges (such as climate change, racism or affordable housing.) At their core, Labs create a safe space for experimentation. This learning approach helps Lab participants to uncover, co-develop and test out possible solutions or approaches that can help address and transform the conditions that are giving rise to the problem at hand.
The T’Sou-ke Housing Solutions Lab explored the following questions:
- How might we support community health, wellbeing, and connection to ecosystems within T’Sou-ke Traditional Territory through the creation of housing strategies that embrace Indigenous worldviews of “home”?
- How might we develop housing strategies that foster and honour peace and friendship treaty responsibilities between Indigenous and non-Indigenous residents living within the traditional territory of T’Sou-ke Nation?
