Global Connections LC: Student project week tackles the environment


The learning community global connections hosted its student project week which started on March 7th and ran till March 14th March.


In inter-university and cross-disciplinary teams, students were asked to choose a topic related to the environment and to produce an artefact of their choice which would reflect their collective views and voice on the topic.

The week saw 18 students from UoL, CY, UPF, UoW, and VUB come together to reflect on environmental issues in a transdisciplinary manner. Most teams chose to focus on ecotourism or sustainability. Participants were free to choose the medium they wanted for their project as the community wanted student groups to reflect on what medium would be most suitable.

This resulted in some very creative and interactive artefacts: a mini theatre scene, a yearly planner, a crossword puzzle, and a poster. On the last day, students presented these projects to the community and a jury panel.
