Programme

The design of the course follows the understanding that to understand challenging systems (for instance, climate, unequality), you have to learn about it from different perspectives. Only through thorough understanding, there is a hope to provide sustainable solutions for the problems it is facing. Therefore, students have the opportunity to learn different aspects of the problems related to equity and equality through case studies, experiences of practitioners and studies of researchers, and slowly try to create their own system without the problems we are facing today.

Current schedule is following. The times are according to Central European Time.
