The collaborative project was initiated for the "50+20 Agenda – Renewing Business Education in Asia" Conference, co-presented by School of Design, Faculty of Business, and Globally Responsible Leadership Initiative (GRLI). Central to the “50+20” vision is the philosophy of the collaboratory which promotes the concept of co-creating viable solutions on equal terms by different members of a community or stakeholders on a particular issue. In order to visualise and concretise this new paradigm of joint learning, research and problem-solving, the 50+20 vision is brought to life using a circle of benches - collaboratory benches. Supporters of 50+20 are creating and installing collaboratory circles at global locations to inspire dialogues about a shared future. The first collaboratory benches were displayed and used at the RIO+20 Earth Summit in 2012.
