The Journey continues: Week two on the #ClimateJourney16

As our Journey students finish the second week of their summer school we take a look back at what they’ve been up to in Paris and Lund.

More than 220 students from over 45 countries, representing 50 disciplines, are currently taking part in Europe’s largest climate change education programme – the Climate-KIC summer school.

The Journey summer school is an introduction to the world of climate change entrepreneurship. The students learn about making decisions, pushing boundaries, getting out of their comfort zone, improving performance and reinforcing their confidence. Set over 13 locations across Europe, this year’s programme is Climate-KIC’s largest summer school and is divided into six separate groups. Each group travels to three different locations gaining insight and experience from a selection of Europe’s best universities and most innovative businesses. 

After an introduction into climate change and entrepreneurship the students will start work on forming their own climate change business idea. The first two groups of students have now finished their time in Paris and Lund and will be heading to Valencia and Munich for the next leg of their journey before joining together for the final stage in Wroclaw where they will present their business ideas.


The Journey students in Paris spent a day doing practical sessions in FabLab learning about prototpying.

Eco-City visit

The students in Lund got a guided tour of the Eco-City in Malmö on their Urban Transitions theme day.

Video Conference

On the Monday, students in Lund got the opportunity to video conference with Andrea Tilche, Head of the Climate Action and Earth Observation Unit for the European Commission.
