SUMMER IN EUROPE (Starts in 2019)
Summer in Europe
For a continent so rich in history and natural wonders, the discover of Europe is not to be rushed.
Our Summer program focuses on the diversity in European cultures and historical events that shaped contemporary Europe. Two weeks preparation study will take place deep inside the Norwegian mountains.
You, and your Team, will then explore Europe for 2 months, immerse yourself in the excitement of unique experiences while applying your knowledge in travels.
After the travel, you will return to Norway for 2 weeks to complete the program and to present your final assessment.
Historically, the East-West division in Europe was not so clear, stable or simple as it appears today.
All in all, we can say that looking at Europe from a historical perspective, we see a mosaic-like pattern and a maze of criss-crossing dividing lines instead of the simple East-West division we hear about. And this continues to be true in contemporary Europe.
The next team starts in June 2018
Preparing for the next 2 months of travel around Europe, finishing and discussing the route, countries to visit, and investigations. Presentations at the school will be made: What the team wants to achieve from their European experience? Politics, culture, migration, wealth and poverty in Europe are examples of investigations during the two months travel.
The team will travel by land on a budget, experiencing the Europe that many people don’t get to see. We will investigate and get to know people and the true culture of each of the countries that we will visit. The route will be set and discuss prior to the start of the travel and will include a combination of western and eastern European countries to understand their differences and similarities.
After two months of being on the road we head back to the school in Norway where we will have a short period of reflection and discussions of what the travel gave to us and what it meant for the team. We will have presentations of our investigations to the school and hear the feedback to our experiences.
