How can students’ wishes be put into practice? In the 2017-2018 school year, hundreds of students explored possibilities and visions for the schools of the future as part of Schools of Tomorrow in 21 school projects and the ideas competition It’s Our School! How (prospective) teachers, art educators and artists can practically implement the resulting action recommendations and the demands of the studentsis the focus of the further education course. Teachers who’ve already tested the action recommendations resulting from the students’ wishes in practice will talk with educational specialists and artists who are new to the field. Do the action recommendations stand up to practical testing? Are updates needed? Can the insights gained at schools be transferred to work with young people in art or in social projects?

In a workshop for the future, instructors visualize the implementable innovations and motivate participants to employ them in their work at schools, recreational facilities and art projects.
