Expected long term effects

The pilot project 2017 landed in the Passionista pedagogy concept. The model is based on encouraging and managing the driving force associated with individual passion, added with technical disciplines, in all areas of interest, at an early stage of life. The structure of education is based on lowering the thresholds between young people and society actors. Passionist education deals with many of society´s most important future challenges - and also provides a rational tool for responding to them.

Approach and implementation

The project has developed a steamy approach and a physical event with an idea contest. 8/4 2017 the event was conducted. The morning was devoted to lectures and inspiration. In the afternoon, the participants were allowed to work together in law and were tasked with crossing their areas of interest to jointly develop a new profession. At the time of the competition, participants also met expertcoaches - these were established actors from business, research and associations with the aim of gaining real impact in the development of ideas. A jury quote three winning ideas.
