Have humans permanently changed the planet? If so, what will this mean for future generations. The SciCulture project (ERASMUS+ funded) has opened grants for a five-day intensive course that will explore this concept by bringing students and professionals from artistic, scientific, educational and entrepreneurial fields together in Bergen this November.
Participants will be challenged and guided by experts from five European institutions to imagine the future of education in the Anthropocene age. The course will be a mix of short lectures and hands-on workshops, which combine disciplines, for effective immersion through practice.
To reimagine education, participants will explore climate change and felt knowledge topics. They will see how entrepreneurship can be introduced into the research of artists and scientists. Whilst, design thinking will be weaved throughout the course. At the end of the week, they will present their project with their assigned team. Sometime after the course, they will creatively engage citizens with their ideas.
Projects from the first course ranged from a live 'human' book performance to ‘the gather’, a space where people can learn from each other throughout life. What new ideas and challenges await SciCulture participants in Norway? Join the course to find out! Applications can be found at www.sciculture.eu/how-to-apply
Applications close 2 September 2019.
