What spaces does the school of tomorrow need and what self-determined processes could be employed to make these areas reality? What happens when students design and produce their own teaching materials? What knowledge exists beyond the classrooms and the schoolyard? And what do teachers actually learn from their pupils when they really listen? What role does sustainability play in the schools of the future, how can digital tools trigger new participatory processes?

In the 2017/2018 school year, twenty projects at schools in Berlin, Tübingen, Malchin and Naples are examining these and more questions. In working groups, in elective subjects or in artistic project weeks, students from the 7th to 12th grades are looking for answers along with teachers, artists and experts.

All of the project groups will work on presentations of their ideas by June 2018. In participatory formats, the students will present their projects at the Schools of Tomorrow's closing festival at HKW.
