EURECA-PRO Summer School – Responsible consumption and production for digitised higher education

June 4, 2021

We invite students of the European University on Responsible Consumption and Production to apply for our summer school: Starting from their own experience of life – students at all degrees should consider the assessment of the sustainability of different ways of behaving: to study online or in on-site physical presence. They receive technical and methodological input from representatives of the EURECA-PRO universities and work out the sustainability of four scenarios, one in each of the international groups.

The summer school is divided into three parts to be completed in two months. A week of learning and working together will take place at one location, with the first venue being Freiberg, Germany, between September 5th to September 11th 2021. Due to the corona pandemic, this assignment can be completed online. Presentations by scientists and experts offer an introduction to the topics of sustainability of digitalisation and assessment. A supporting programme will enable exchange on European culture among the participants.

Almost a month before the start of the summer school, participants complete a self-study on “Responsible Consumption and Production” using recommended literature and prepare a short presentation about the relation of their European place of study to SDG12. In addition, they take part in a short course in the national language of the venue.

The summer school is concluded by the preparation of a group report. Participants work in international and interdisciplinary teams on scenarios about the sustainability of different forms to study online or in on-site physical presence.

Students from partner universities should apply with a cover letter, CV and a presentation of their motivation for participating, which can be designed creatively, for example as a video or poster until July 7h 2021.
