The aim of practical work with students is to acquaint them with the basic ideas and principles of sustainable cities and places (or sustainable schools), the problems of urban areas and the ways how to improve the quality of life. For example, during the workshops the students will acquire knowledge and skills of how to design a project for improving their own places of living, evaluate a space around them, create imaginary building, co-design their schoolyard, etc.
Students will be encouraged to propose creative ideas which promote some of trans-disciplinary topics, such as, green cities, green roofs and facades, solar panels, renewable energy sources, landscape protection, preserving agricultural land, mobility and networking, smart houses, new building trends, etc., and some of these ideas will be implemented jointly with their teachers, local artists and creative actors. Students will be encouraged to propose their ideas.
Practical activities with students will be carried out until the end of 2016.
