Summer University 2019
Creative Week in Europe
Opole, Berlin, Trier, Luxembourg
3-10 August, 2019
Creative Week in Europe is an additional programme prepared together with the University of Opole (Poland) to give the Summer School students even more opportunity to exercise English and visit Luxembourg and Western Germany. It was the bus trip in the western direction from Opole that took students to the border between Germany and Luxembourg. In the stunning Mosel valley area, we have spent a week with our partner University of Applied Sciences learning about European identity and lifestyle using experimental design methods in the shades of the ancient Roman Porta Nigra.
The creative workshop was followed by the visits to Karl Marx museum as the city of Tier is his hometown and it celebrates the 200th anniversary of the philosopher’s birth. The week was concluded with a field trip to a re-developed Belval industrial zone, where the campus of the University of Luxembourg is located.
The trip was also the continuation of classes by professor Robert Geisler at the University of Opole (1. part of the Summer University) – the fieldwork – observation of the everyday-life of the Europeans.
