Five residency places are available for professionals or grad students to join our summer school in Sweden – as explained here. Here is my text Bioregions: Notes On A Design Agenda. See also the course page of our partner, Konstfack, here. The summer school FB page is here.

The one week event runs from next Sunday, 9 August, for seven days. As a Resident, you don’t get the 7.5 credits – but you do get to join an amazing group for what we hope will be a transformational week.
Farmers’ markets as hubs of knowledge exchange? Food waste as social enterprise? Blue-green systems as social assets? In this Summer Xskool, we explore how design can help people interact with living systems in ways that help both of them thrive. We will craft and test small actions that effect larger social-, economic- and eco-systems. And we will do this by learning, designing and collaborating with a unique cultural-ecological centre including activities with Sweden’s leading culinary arts school.

– camping site (big enough for four person tent; shower and hot water included;
(Rental of a four person tent is an extra SEK 350 (euros 37, US$41) per night).
