Update – Concrete – New plan for the Summer Academy 2020! 

We have shortened the duration of the Summer Academy and so you are now all invited to three days – from September 3 to 6, 2020 – of joint research on the topic “Our ground and soil as common property: How do we want to live?

Our main topics and their formats will remain the same: On our experimental field here in Hohenbrünzow we will cover a wide range of topics from soil fertility to the creation of self-determined lives. In theoretical, practical and artistic workshops, lectures and discussion groups we will expand our wealth of experience (more details under programme).

Our daily feel-good programme includes Baking with Dietlind and Hannes at the wood-burning oven, Taijiquan in the estate park with Swan and Gernot, functional fitness with Frida, jogging and swimming with Rüdi and Nouma… and of course cultural surprises around the campfire!

In response to the challenges of today’s world, we also base our financing on the principle of solidarity. In this spirit, our crowdfunding campaign will be running from Wednesday, July 8th and registration is possible for you here on our website.

Due to the necessary restructuring, we have limited the number of participants to 35 places. Therefore, the order of registration will determine the allocation of places. So do not hesitate too long, “because first come, first served”. For registration please scroll down!

If you want to show your participation in the Summer Academy 2020 with a donation, you can do so via Crowdfunding!

We look forward to your participation!

How do we finance ourselves?

We want to give everyone the possibility to join the Summer Academy, regardless of their personal financial situation. Therefore we decided to go with collective funding.

That means that our finance plan is openly accessible for everyone, so you can see all expenses (check below!). These are the costs that have to be covered to ensure the realization of the Academy.

Ideally, each participant pays the calculated price (147€) which covers one full participation. Nevertheless you have the possibility to pay as you can and perhaps someone else with more financial capital will equal it out.
This way we can collectively make the Academy happen and make sure that everyone interested can join.

Let people know of this project, so also people who will not join personally but still like the idea, can donate to make this work!
