U!REKA Change Agents

Students across our European network are working together on sustainability challenges in the U!REKA Change Agents programme

The U!REKA Change Agents programme brings students together from Amsterdam, Ghent, Frankfurt, Helsinki and Odessa to work collaboratively on a pressing environmental question: How can we create more public awareness about the sustainable use of water across different European cities, taking into account socio-cultural, health, climate, and economic dimensions?

Students from the U!REKA network are invited to participate in the second edition of the U!REKA Change Agents programme. Apply by 18 January!

The 2023 Change Agents Programme is offered in collaboration with the AUAS's Digital Society School. Students from Amsterdam, Belgium, Frankfurt, Helsinki and Odessa will work closely together on the following design challenge:

How can we create more public awareness about the sustainable use of water across different European cities, taking into account socio-cultural, health, climate, and economic dimensions?

Participants will become environmental ‘change agents’, collaborating with their international peers to design the right conditions for real transformation, based on the principles of strategic transformation design, sustainability, diversity, experimentation and critical making.
