Course Content


Students learn to take responsibility for local challenges and the people around them. They try to find the inner motivation for their contribution to the community, from helping people with special needs to learning about and from socially oriented organisations, companies and movements. They will make presentations and initiate new projects.



For a healthy and thriving society we need to pay attention to those in more need and offer direct help or create social systems where the needs are better taken care of already by design. It is essential that a pupil sees him/herself as the citizen of Earth and carries the responsibility for the global society. We have to honour our ancestors, from whom we have inherited our land and culture and also our family and neighbours with whom we are taking care of this heritage. 


Through direct and immersive experiences learn about different situations and groups in society, reflect and through dreaming and designing try to create societal models that work better. Doing volunteer work in a neighbourhood or in a charity project. Presenting a development project or a solution for a challenge in a community, involvement in local politics, participation on protest meetings, writing articles in local media,
