Do you have plans this summer? Seven days of Sustainable Summer School.

A summer school on sustainable design in the Meuse-Rhine Euregion 
in unique collaboration with the renowned Canadian Institute without Boundaries

REcentre is a cross border knowledge and promotion centre propelling the development of sustainable design. It’s located in the region of Liège (B), Hasselt (B), Maastricht (NL) and Aachen (D). Given its goal of promoting sustainable design, REcentre is aiming to set up an education programme in the region focused on this theme. To this end, it is working together with the renowned Institute without Boundaries, a postgraduate institution affiliated with George Brown College in Toronto, Canada. The Institute is particularly active in the area of design from a sociological, ecological and economic viewpoint. The Sustainable Summer School of REcentre will be the European counterpart.

The Sustainable Summer School takes place from 19 – 25 August 2011. It involves a short course, aiming to provide participants with new insights via an intensive curriculum in the field of sustainability and design. The Institute without Boundaries’ faculty will join forces with Euregional lecturers to accompany the participants. The program will have an interdisciplinary design approach. The Sustainable Summer School is targeted at designers, students, teachers and enthusiasts of all possible backgrounds. Three case studies will be tackled: Public Space, Food and Water sharing the common theme of ‘Identity’. The results of the workshops will have to be feasible design concepts.
