Teacher training: Integrating design processes into daily school life

Enrolments are open! Context:What if we could redesign everything to address the major sustainability challenges of the 21st century? Circular design is about designing products and services that do not have a life cycle with a beginning (production – take), a middle (consumption – use) and an end (waste – dispose), but whose entire life cycle is seen in a circle. Objective:KnowledgeThe participants:– know the […]

Formation continue des enseignants:  Interdisziplinär Projeten ëmsetzen

Inscriptiounen ab dem 15.11.2021 méiglech. Kontext:Haut gët vill vun Interdisziplinaritéit geschwat, ma wat geschitt wierklech an de Schoulen? Wéi kënne mir déi grousser Erausfuerderungem vun eiser Zäit (wéi z.B. Ëmwelt- oder sozial Problematiken) op eng Manéier ugoen, déi hierer Komplexitéit Rechnung dréit an déi iwwer de jeeweilegen Tellerrand vun den eenzelne Schoulfächer geet? Watfireng praktesch an inhaltlech Upassungen kënne mir un eiser Approche maachen, fir […]

Design inspired by nature

Design inspired by nature

If we want to understand nature and design anything inspired by nature, we can take a close look at its order, patterns and regularities! We learn why different shapes exist in nature and what they make possible (spirals, symmetry, branching, waves, etc.) and see how people have adapted these patterns to create a design inspired by nature. Our example of this is the Äerdschëff, which […]

Experience the soil

Experience the soil

Despite all the advances of human civilisation, our survival depends on about 50cm of soil and regular rainfall (quote: Paul Harvey). For being so important for food, carbon storage, regulating water in urban areas and biodiversity, we do not know it well! Moreover, we do not treat this precious resource very well in industialised agriculture, through sealing of land and changes in land use. In […]

Circular design

Circular design

Jiddfereen ass een Designer ! Beim zirkulären Design geet ët drëm, fir Produkter a Servicer ze kreéieren, déi kee Liewenszyklus méi mat engem Ufank (Produktioun – take ), enger Mëtt (Konsum – use ) an engem Enn (Offall – dispose) hunn, mee wou mer hiere ganze Liewenszyklus am Kreeslaf gesinn. Mir léieren d’Haaptmiirkmalen (z.B. vum Produit zum Service) vun zirkulärem Design kennen, a leeden d’Teilnehmer […]

Waasser: Méi wéi just eng Ressource

Waasser: Méi wéi just eng Ressource

Mir léieren d’Waasser e bëssen anescht kennen a beäntwerten dës Froen: Wéi kënne mer eis Notzung vum Waasser angesichts vum Klimawandel adaptéieren, fir dass mer souwuel Dürreperioden wéi och Schloreen op eisem Terrain gudd geréiere kënnen? Mir erkläeren d’Waassersystemer vum Äerdschëff (Opfänksystem an zirkulären Ofwaassermanagementsystem), teste Waasser op pH, Pestiziden, Mikrobiologie, an Partikelen) a kréien ee klengen Abléck an d’Reglementer rondrëmt eist Waasser. Lien mat […]
