Let’s take a look back at Week 4 of the #ClimateJourney16

As our Journey students finish the fourth week of their summer school we take a look back at what they’ve been up to in Valencia, Munich, Zurich, Budapest, the Netherlands and Hamburg.

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 last two groups of students have set off on their Journey in the Netherlands and Hamburg. Meanwhile the other Journey groups are gearing up for their finals in Wroclaw and Bologna this week.
