Each day a top-class key note speaker will offer you brief insights into one dimension of the topic, but no finished solutions. Therefore we believe that the following interactive discussions, including all of your challenging questions, will shape the best ways to sustainably develop approaches which you can take with you and apply in the future.
In the afternoons, you can improve your insights and broaden your mind with workshops on different topics related to the key note speech of the day. It will be all about exchange of ideas, mutual inspiration and critical reflection. All of you are asked to bring your knowledge, questions, ideas and inspiration to create an amazing, vivid atmosphere together.
While university courses often end with providing knowledge and examining different topics, we will go further and want you to make a difference. We will offer you two different expert-led practical session for applying all what you have theoretically learned. In the end you will present your ideas to the group and get valuable feedback.
Your conference days will start with a short “Warm up” in the morning – half an hour of feel-good program to make you feel happy and awake. The breakfast will be as well as lunch, coffee and dinner vegetarian, freshly prepared and as far as possible organic, fair and regional produced. After an interesting conference day, you will fall asleep in a students shared flat in the city of Witten. Your hosts are friendly students of the Witten/Herdecke university and will let you explore the student life in Witten. Furthermore spending one week together with other dedicated students in the heart of the Ruhr area not just offers the opportunity to learn and discuss on relevant topics but also to explore the beauties of the Ruhr valley and it´s industrial heritage. We will offer a social program and leave you enough space to just hang out together, enjoy the international community of your fellow participants, switch your brains and dance!
