Application-deadline for scholarships in April

Apr 5, 2018 by

The application for scholarships for the GBS Summer University ends on April 10, 2018 and for the AEMS Summer School on April 22, 2018. The academic programmes deal with sustainable topics in construction and planning as well as alternative economic and monetary systems. Whereas the aimed number of participants is 60 people per course in 2018, the internationality of the participants is stunning: Since the first instalment of both courses, there were 400 participants from over 60 nations taking part in the GBS and AEMS summer courses and enjoyed the multicultural and interdisciplinary setting.

The two summer programmes GBS and AEMS start with the emerging topic of climate change and resource protection and focus on sustainability. Current issues and approaches to solutions in the field of ecological architecture and energy-efficient building (GBS) as well as alternative financial and economic systems (AEMS) are dealt with and developed on the basis of practical examples in the courses.
