WHY JOIN THE ACADEMY?
At the Academy you will get knowledge of theories and movements within sustainable societal transformation and be equipped to be a change-agent yourself!
You will get:
Lectures from experts in the field
Tools and training in storytelling, change-making and public communication
A physical toolbox sent to your address before the start of the Academy
The chance to set the agenda for climate and social justice in your society
You will be part of an inspiring, interdisciplinary, and international network of young people
After the Academy, you will have the chance to participate in forthcoming projects which includes study trips and advocacy tours in Europe, a European Folk High School in Denmark and Spain, a conference of the New Economy and much more.
To create change the first step is to gain in-depth and up-to-date knowledge of ideas and theories within sustainable societal transformation. We will investigate and co-create visions and solutions together based on the knowledge we gain within:
System thinking & Future-making
Transformative Environmental Policies
Rights and Democracy
When we have investigated what we want to change, we need to know how to do it! For this we need tools that help us act within and influence our surroundings. At the Academy you will get practical tools within:
Written and oral communication
Joining the Academy does not require any prior knowledge of economics, climate policies or transformative practices, only that you have a desire to get involved in the course and exchange ideas and your own experiences with the other participants. It is free of charge to participate in the Academy, but in return we expect you to actively participate throughout the whole course.
Participants will be selected based on personal motivation and on creating a diverse and interdisciplinary group. We encourage everyone regardless of gender, religion, or ethnicity
to sign up.
