About this event

Climate Leadership Journey is an extracurricular challenge-based programme from EIT Climate-KIC that prepares master’s students, post-graduates, and young professionals to lead the transformation that society needs.

The programme combines over 10 years of experience from our education programmes supported by the European Institute of Technology (EIT). Climate Leadership Journey includes the year-round elements from the Climate Innovation Leadership pilot (which is built on the foundation of the EIT Label framework) and puts the Journey summer school at its core with its strong methodological approach and pedagogy.

The programme runs on yearly cycles from April to December and it is delivered in a blended format where most of the activities are held online except for the two-week summer school which is residential (locations change every year depending on our delivery partners).

SPARK! EXPERIENCE:

This first CLJ'22 SPARK event will provide an introduction to the concepts of sustainability and sustainable development, and how do WE unsterstand these terminologies. Furhtermore, we will connect these understandings with core components of bio-inspired design as a prelude to the CLJ summer school. The students will have a change to learn more about core sustainability concepts concepts and to explore solutions that looks into nature for grabbing inspiration.
