SPOTTED: Students join forces against climate change in the Honours Lab

  • Research

Properly weaponizing students against the global warming. That’s the goal of RE:PLACE, a track of the Honours Lab in which students from the Radboud University and from art school ArtEZ develop new learning environments focusing on sustainability. Vox, the independent magazine of Radboud University, wrote an inspiring article about RE:PLACE.

In the article, several students who participate in RE:PLACE are interviewed. One of them is Karolina Wargin, who is a Master’s student at ArtEZ. The climate crisis was an important reason for Wargin to take part in the honours lab. She was born in Poland but moved to Italy when she was eleven. One-and-a-half years ago, she came to the Netherlands for the master Artist Educator at ArtEz. Karoline: "That’s how I ended up at RE:PLACE. I wanted to be more actively and politically involved with climate changes by working together with other people."
