This exemplary curriculum will be put into teaching practice as a cross-disciplinary experiment in higher éducation. The project has brought together a group of 27 renowned university teachers from science, the humanities, and art & design. They are collaboratively developing a set of topics relevant to the Anthropocene in an attempt to encourage the integration of cross-disciplinary thinking, mutual learning, and civic commitment in the curricula of universities and research institutions.
One hundred international participants will be given the opportunity to engage in this curricular experiment, contributing their own perspectives and expertise.
The campus provides a transdisciplinary co-learning space for young scholars from a wide range of disciplinary, academic, and professional backgrounds and opens up a forum for exploring the scopes, scales, and designs of Anthropocene relevant knowledge.
