In order to act locally, we need to think globally when it comes to energy transition. Hence an international mindset is required. Engagement is also needed to foster local learning communities. This makes the exchange of intercultural perspectives very important. For this reason intercultural awareness is an important component of this summer course. Futures literacy, the skill that allows one to better understand the role that the future plays in what we see and do, is also an important aspect of the course. Other topics cover a variety of disciplines and aim at giving you a strong basis to develop your own insights. For instance Adaptive Leadership, Sustainability and New Business Models, Communication and Behaviour.

This three-week summer course is structured in such a way that the theory learned is put into practice by working on assignments in a project and group setting. The course also offers inspirational field trips and network opportunities. For instance, students will visit the pioneer island in energy transition, Ameland.

In addition to the academic programme, the course offers an exciting social programme where students get to interact with international students from the other summer courses. Together you will discover Groningen, Dutch culture and learn from one another's culture.
