The first summer school for energy change agents in the Lake Constance region will take place in June 2018.
The summer school is an invitation to doctoral candidates, students, activists, civil society actors and representatives from administration and politics to create a common learning space.
Local and practical experience is contrasted with socio-cultural, technical, and economic perspectives and put together to create new insights and knowledge. The resulting broader perspectives will be applied on practical cases in the region.
In doing so, the summer school contributes locally to one of the most pressing challenges of the 21st century: the transformations of energy cultures towards greater sustainability.
WHO & WHERE
The summer school is organized by a consortium comprising Zeppelin University, the University of Applied Sciences Vorarlberg and the HTWG Konstanz. Together with stakeholders from various fields of practice and civil society actors, the summer school 2018 is implemented as a pilot project. After a thorough evaluation, reflection, and revision of the first pilot summer school, the format will be further developed in the following years and regularly realized at different locations in the Lake Constance region.
The pilot summer school will take place in June 2018 at the Zeppelin University (ZU) and will be carried out in cooperation with the Graduate School of ZU (ZUGS). It is financially supported by the International Bodenseehochschule (IBH) as a project for innovation in teaching.
Active and/or future energy change agents including doctoral candidates, students, and representatives from all fields of practice in the Lake Constance region are invited to co-design the summer school as a learning space between theory and practice.
