Generating new knowledge with young people and sharing it with the world. That’s what LaMouseion does, by creating a fertile setting in which new ideas and perspectives can grow. LaMouseion is a contemporary version of the legendary Mouseion, which was a unique forum for knowledge in ancient Alexandria. LaMouseion is in search of systems and laws for a new society by reaching out to young people; by giving the younger generations the opportunity and the freedom to think the unthinkable, in LABIOMISTA. And so, in the midst of the Anthropocene, LaMouseion aspires to be a new beginning, starting from the egg – Ab Ovo.
The knowledge generated in the three think boxes will be documented and can be consulted at the Library of Collected Knowledge. Each of the boxes is named after one of the pillars of evolution: diversity, fertility and immunity. These are also the three overarching themes within which the young people reflect on such themes as the new economy or a different model for society. LaMouseion is conceived as a school for life, and is supported by Vrije Universiteit Brussel and Université Libre de Bruxelles, KULeuven, Global Campus of Human Rights, and various local partners.
