SciCulture Intensive Programme

Our first SciCulture intensive course was held in April, 2019 in Athens, Greece. The second intensive course was held in Bergen, Norway from the 11th to 15th November, 2019. The course provided an opportunity for diverse experts to work together on a project exploring: ‘The Future of Education in the age of the Anthropocene, in 2050’. We had expert speakers from 5 countries: the UK, Norway, Netherlands, Greece and Malta.

The next SciCulture intensive course will be held in Netherlands, in April 2021, exploring what cities of the future may look like Our tutors are currently designing a course which can be engaged with in person, but also online if required/preferred.

Participants will engage in workshops, facilitated project time and mentorship with our experts, along with fun excursions and adventures! They will develop transferable skills and a long-term network to enable future collaborations using a design thinking process. The course will ultimately motivate our participants to address the big challenges faced in today's times.
