Chapter 0: Introduction

The research program Values for Survival explores thinking and design with which we can live and survive the current times of uncertainty and not-knowing. The results of this research, which include science, policy and design, will be published in Cahiers. In these note- or logbooks results and reflections are documented in time to be an inspiration for the future.

In the coming months we will publish more Cahiers, with different structures, and with other authors studying the values for survival we need in the era to come. In this way we will contribute digitally to the research that was initiated by Hashim Sarkis, curator of the 17th Architecture Biennale of Venice. He posed the question ‘How will we live together?’ and the Dutch contribution answered with the question ‘Who is we?’. These Cahiers on Values for Survival gather answers to these questions.
