Hubville offers schools to become involved in the creation of tomorrow’s sustainable society. Together with the students architectural organization Sveriges Arkitekter Studenterna, pupils are given the opportunity to influence how a society can be designed, in order to create well-being in an environment that balances ecological and social care.
During the spring semester 2020, nine elementary schools and one high school will evaluate a creative material adapted to Swedens national curriculum, LGR11. Based on the class’s suggestions and desires, the architecture students will produce an architectural visualization. A city that is not a utopia but will actually be built.
The schools are located from Umeå in the north of Sweden to Lund in the south.
Since sustainability requires international cooperation and understanding, we also initiate cooperation with schools outside Sweden. We currently have dialogue with schools in Africa and the United States.
The school collaboration takes place through 2022initiative.org, a foundation that anchors the sustainable goals of Agenda 2030 to intermediate goals, where 2022 consist of part time goals in a sustainability conference in Sweden.
During the summer of 2020, the collaboration with the school will be put into a new foundation.
From autumn 2020, additional schools will be invited, and the starting point is a long-term collaboration with the school together with Hubville, architecture students and the 2022 Initiative. Find out more about it here.
This is how it works
Participating schools receives a study guidance with subject-specific issues, such as housing, transportation, school, energy, the connection between the city and the countryside. After working through a curruculum, two architecture students will visit each school class in March. Based on the class’s suggestions and dreams, the students develop a visualization of the children’s city, which then participates in an exhibition.
All material is designed according to the guidelines described below to create a cross-curricular understanding and is applicable to the learning objectives in several subjects; art, biology, physics, geography, craft, home and consumer knowledge, chemistry, mathematics and civics.
