T4EU | Open Applications for Summer Course in Lithuania

Thursday, June 6, 2024 - 09:07

From June 7 to 23, applications are open for Transform4Europe's (CO)HAPPINESS LABORATORY summer course, which will take place from August 27 to 29 in Kaunas, Lithuania.

Organised by Vytautas Magnus University, the course focuses on creating the conditions for happiness in times of challenge and transformations. Participants will have the opportunity to explore topics on how to recognise, create and maintain happiness on a personal, group and social level.

This course will take the form of a hackathon – an event, typically lasting several days, where people come together to collaborate to solve a problem or identify new opportunities and to learn from each other. The course includes group activities and the presentation of a final proposal for a ‘happiness formula’ to a panel of judges.

Besides lectures with experts from different academic fields (Psychology, Philosophy, Economics, Neuroscience, Anthropology, Political Science, etc.), the course will also have cultural moments to explore the vibrant Kaunas streets, traditional Lithuanian cuisine, and rich cultural heritage.

This summer course confers 3 ECTS, is funded by Transform4Europe, and is open to all UCP bachelor's and master's students.
