13: Mission to Mars – Education for change

-
Hauptschule
Seminar / Seminar
German and English language

The seminar will explore that most fundamental of our public spheres, the education system. Applying the concept of design thinking, the participants are sent on an imaginary ‘Mission to Mars’. The main goal is to break free of existing educational structures and prototype a new system of learning. The seminar is for change-agents and those who recognise the centrality of education in any discussion about building a better world. Over the course of six days we will reflect on the purpose of education and design our own school, one where the curriculum, pedagogy, environment, staffing and organisation support our vision for what education should be. The design process will build empathy, and challenge us to bring actionable insights and a collective vision for all to take home.
