Planning and Testing Approaches to Transformative Education (Wuppertal Institute)

The Wuppertal Institute's new research project led by Matthias Wanner, entitled "Development, testing and dissemination of new qualification offers for 'change agents' for transformative learning using the real-world laboratory approach" (abbreviated from the German as EEVA), was launched with a one-day workshop on 15 May 2018 in the presence of guests from around the world. The project is taking place in collaboration with the Leuphana University of Lüneburg and the Institut Futur (futures research institute) at Freie Universität Berlin. The German Federal Environmental Foundation (DBU) will be providing specialist and financial support for three years. The project aims to enable students at both universities to establish and run their own small, interdisciplinary "transformative innovation labs" as part of their master’s theses.
