Welcome to Planet B
The Festival University 2022
200 Students — Faculty of 40 Experts, Lecturers, Mentors, Inspirers — 4 Weeks — 1 Festival
Global challenges of tomorrow require a new approach – one based on creativity and co-creation. The Festival University, a joint initiative between Ars Electronica and Johannes Kepler University Linz (JKU), invites students from around the world to jointly develop planetary strategies for change and transformation.
This second edition of the Festival University takes place in Linz August 18 – September 14, 2022.
Up to 200 young people from all around world from different cultural and educational backgrounds will be invited and gather to explore and define new pathways towards transformational change. The Ars Electronica Festival will again be the public stage to present their ideas and the outcomes of the Festival University.
With „Welcome to Planet B“ as the title for this year’s festival, the focus of the program is not just on climate change and its effects itself, but extends to the even more important questions of how we as a society, as nations, as a global community can respond to the challenges it poses.
- How can we collaborate and cope with the massive transformations required?
- How can we set the changes in motion?
- How can we manage such changes?
- What consequences will all these changes bring?
- What will the world, our world, look like after we have managed this transformation?
