Summer school in Social City Design - Cancelled

Given the recent developments in the Covid-19 outbreak and based on the advice of university experts, the management of the University of Antwerp decided to cancel the physical version of the summer schools taking place in June and July 2020. 

This means however that we will start to plan next year’s edition from today onwards. If you want to stay tuned about the launch of the 2021 edition, please sign up for our newsletter by completing this form (and choosing Design Sciences).

Join us for a 5-day practical, inspiring and engaging summer school on social innovation and human centered design in the city context. Product, service and system designers, social innovators, academic researchers, and multiple other experts from (non-)profit organizations and governmental institutions will guide you through this summer school on social city design. You will be thinking and doing on the following subjects, from different perspectives: 

  • Superdiversity in the city
  • Interactive storytelling in the city context
  • Citizen driven design
  • Social care, social city?
  • Creative bureaucracy
  • Human centered design and city challenges
