Very interest is the way by which the teams of experts work. Participants will take part in a unique journey a shared quest to uncover building blocks for a story that expresses a new European purpose.

The Lab sessions follow the principles of secular pilgrimage: During three days participants will go through five stages. In each stage, the participant co-create a map that will give input and orientation for the next stage of their shared journey .

As the  Lab New Vienna website explain there are five specific steps of co-working:

1. Listening :Sharing views on what LAB participants perceive as important and urgent personal and collective issues in Europe. this is :Brainstorming, Eisenhower Mapping.

2. Co-analyzing:Work together to create a network map illustrating how Europeans’ personal and collective issues are linked.This is: Participative Impact Mapping.

3. Uncovering : Explore and clarify latent values and purposes. Link values and purposes with the most important systemic challenges discovered in stage to become aware of the most vital, attractive values. This is: Attractor-Detractor Mapping.

4. Generating: Create prototypes and explore examples of already existing initiatives, organizations, and  technologies that manifest the values and purposes discovered in stage 3.This is: Map Jam, Analytical Hierarchy Mapping.

5. Co-authoring Transform results of stage 1 through stage 4 into a shared narrative.This is :Story Mapping.

The LAB is organizing seven sessions featuring 50 European pioneers.
