Welcome to Egesta Lab, where we strive to inspire the much-needed re-framing of challenges and opportunities, and the re-imagining of workable solutions. The words we use to talk about things has a major impact on our thinking, what we see as problematic and the solutions that come to mind. ‘Egesta’ is not tied to a certain way of thinking about these issues. It signals the need to break with rigid thought patterns, without losing sight of the past.
On this site you will find updates about our research, links to research and mobilization outputs, updates and information on our team members and opportunities to engage with us! We appreciate your interest in our work and would love to hear from you!
