Norman Foster Foundation (NFF) Sustainability Workshop, supported by the Rolex Institute.
The Workshop will take place in Madrid from 18-22 October 2021. As with previous workshops, ten grants will be awarded to a selection of exceptional students from around the world to attend and work on collaborative projects throughout the week-long programme. These grants will cover all visa, transportation and accommodation costs associated with the workshop.
Due to the leading academic profile of your institution, we would be grateful if you could inform your outstanding students that the selection process has just been launched. In order to provide equal chances to interested students worldwide, we have also issued an Open Call for applications which poses the following question: How can the field of design shift its relationship with sustainability from one of scarcity and limitation towards abundance and possibility?
The deadline for submissions is Monday 30 July 2021 24:00 CEST (Madrid time). For any additional information, you can refer to the NFF website: www.normanfosterfoundation.org
The Workshop will be a unique opportunity to work with experts, practitioners and academics to explore sustainable solutions for overarching topics such as climate change, the use of energy and resources, and their local and global implications. The workshop experience will enable students to become part of a growing network of scholars and alumni connected to the NFF.
