Sustainability & Environmentalism
Exceptional summer school in Sustainability & Environmentalism at Royal Hospital School
As the planet progresses further into the 21st century, the topic of sustainability becomes more and more prioritised. In a time of rapid population growth, noticeable climate change and emerging technologies, it is today’s young people who will inherit the future, and take charge of the direction in which planet Earth is heading.
This programme will help you understand the challenges that mankind is facing, as well as the opportunities that will help transform the global economy into a sustainable and future-minded model.
The key question this programme asks is ‘how do ambitious young people prepare for careers that don’t exist yet?’.
How would you describe a social media manager, VR developer or big data analyst to someone 10 years ago?
The Future Insights programme focuses on forward-thinking content that helps students develop well-rounded skills, whilst looking at potential careers available to them in 10 years time and beyond.
The course also puts huge emphasis on practical learning. Participants will be exposed to emerging technologies, and will gain hands-on experience learning how they work, including:
Building robotic vehicles
Exploring virtual reality
Racing sustainable vehicles
Really wonderful experience – I met new people from all over the world, learnt about new cultures and most importantly learnt more about my chosen subject in the best way possible.
Work hard, play hard.
The Future Insights timetable includes four excursions:
Work hard, play hard.
