Summer school: GREEN LINE: decentralisation, decoupling, degrowth

open until the 30th of June 2024.

The summer school take place in the period:
29 July - 4 August 2024
hypha_etc, Câmpu Cetății, Mures county

The Green Line Summer School is aimed at students interested in the video essay as a form of argumentation and communication on the one hand, and the green transition as a subject on the other. The school is open to students regardless of field of study and previous experience.

The main programme consists of a series of workshops in which students will learn the basics of audiovisual communication on the one hand and the video essay on the other, working on examples of the green transition. The workshops cover both pre-production stages (structuring research on a topic, planning an argument and narrative structure, theoretical foundations of multimodal communication) and production stages (developing data visualisation and editing skills).

In addition, the school offers lectures on the green transition and electrification, inviting participants to reflect on the future, on the possibilities and limitations of technology, as well as social justice in relation to these transformations.

The school space also offers ample opportunities for spontaneous or organized group discussions and activities, such as sports, hiking, film screenings, stargazing.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptops if possible, but this is not a mandatory requirement.

We expect students from both STEM and socio-humanities backgrounds, as well as high school seniors, to attend the school. There is no registration fee. We offer free accommodation in 4-6 bedded rooms, up to a maximum of 24 beds, plus free camping space. Travel expenses (train or bus) can be covered up to 130 RON.

Those wishing to participate are asked to send a letter of motivation by 30 June to
