Building a Sustainable Future / Online & In-Person (Germany)
27 June - 31 July 2022 & 25 July - 31 August 2022
The UWC Short Course “Building a Sustainable Future” will touch on issues within economic, environmental and social sustainability – and their several intersections – to give young participants a chance to rethink sustainability in all its rich complexity.
These themes will be explored in a non-formal learning setting, including self-led projects, interactive workshops, debates, reflections, guest speakers, etc. Participants will be enabled to engage in discussions on sustainability, and will be encouraged to envision the world in terms of a sustainable future and to contribute to this vision.
In 2022, Building a Sustainable Future will bring this mission into two courses: the online course and the in-person course:
Dates: 27 June until 31 July (online course); 25 July until 13 August (in-person course)
Location: online (stable Internet connection required); in-person (at Zebra Kagel - close to the German capital Berlin)
Participant age requirement: online course: 14-19 years at the time of the course; in-person course: 15-19 years at the time of the course
Other requirements: Both courses are looking for open-minded young people interested in sustainability that are willing to reflect and work on the topic together with many others. The online course requires participants to have a stable Internet connection. The In-Person course has Covid-19 regulations in place that require participants to be vaccinated by an EU approved vaccine
