Seven days of Sustainable Summer School with Institute without Boundaries and Euregional faculty and international experts. Read the programme and biographies of the faculty to convince yourself of participating in this unique week of Sustainable Summer School. You will tackle three themes that live in cities of the Meuse-Rhine Euregion: water, food and public space.

During the course you will make a 2-day trip to the city that is linked to your case study: Maastricht, Hasselt, Genk or Liège. Guided by experts, you will get insight in very particular problems of this region. Along the way, experts from all kinds of fields and nationalities will advise you. Not to forget the beautiful old mansion, surrounded by nature that will be your home during this seven days of working vacation.

A short course, aiming to provide participants with new insights via an intensive curriculum in the field of sustainability and design. The programme will have an interdisciplinary design approach.

The IwB faculty will join forces with Euregional lecturers to accompany the participants. The participants will be divided in teams working on the three case studies. Each team is facilitated by IwB and Euregional faculty.

Case studies
Each project team will tackle the challenges faced by the three different regions of the Euregion. Each team will be given a basic design brief and project description and a template to expand and develop their own project design briefs based on the different case study sites and team objectives. Each team will be facilitated by IwB and Euregional faculty.

Three themes will be explored: Public Space, Food and Water. All three will be approached in a site specific context sharing the notion of identity. The results of the workshops are sustainable concepts that answer the needs of three case studies.
- Case study Public Space - Liège (Province of Liège)
