Conference on the Future of Europe Event /
Resilience and the (non)sense of teacher training for university teachers in the South of Europe

A dialogue and debate at the intersection of generations,
and northern and southern Europe.
14:00 - 17:00 CEST/GMT+1
Amsterdam / Italy timezone
Invitation via Email
Confirmation via Eventbride (includes calendar invitation and ZOOM link)
Note 4 February 2022: Tickets sold out. Unless you received an exclusive invitation, personally, we closed the tickets, and are curating the groups. Keep an eye on the products that come out of the event and pilot.
We carefully select a pool of shortlisted young university teaching staff, as well as seasoned university teachers and experts, in northern and southern Europe, and per exclusive invitation offer them the opportunity to contribute to the largest citizen-consultation ever in Europe - the Conference on the Future of Europe.
We invite them to engage in dialogues and debates with each other, around ‘resilience and the (non)sense of teacher training for university teachers. The outcomes of the dialogues and debates are reported to the European Parliament.
The majority of the time is reserved for actual interactions with the purpose of reaching policy recommendations for younger generations of university teachers in (Southern) Europe over the coming decades.
Japanese future design analogue model going synchronous
The event we envision is not merely a discussion. Find our guide here.
We are creating a synchronous universe of audio playgrounds which is an education unto itself.
At the heart of the event is the conversation between young university teachers from the South of Italy - University of Naples Federico II (DiarC / UNINA) - and other universities in Italy and Spain - student assistants, PhD candidates, lecturers on temporary contracts - and the educational experts and lecturers with more established careers (either from the North or South of Europe).
The purpose is to ignite qualitative and lively interactions, dialogues and debates between these groups, across generations and regions of the South of Europe. To take the individual experience and expertise, into the collective, the systemic, the adaptive.
Thereby we approach the North and South of Europe without compartmentalising the regions, but rather seeing the fluidity of their borders, and exploring each other’s worlds, history, present experiences, needs, ideas and hopes. You can see this beautifully reflected in the graphic art created especially for the event, in which we see the South with new eyes, from the sea, and as a single borderless line.
- Policy recommendations for younger generations of teachers for the coming decades in (Southern) Europe, for the European Parliament as part of this deliberate democratic event.
- New professional connections, that intersect generations and north and south - and beyond.
Outputs follow organically after the event:
- Report for GaragErasmus/European Parliament
- A pilot project with audio podcast broadcasting

StudioBlended aims to support public life, public squares that are so essential for dialogue and debate in our democracies, by supporting cafes and restaurants in these times of lockdown. The moderation of this European event takes place in an 1920s bathhouse, built in the style of Amsterdamse School and turned into a restaurant - Badhu in Utrecht, the Netherlands. We will share pictures afterwards via GaragErasmus and LinkedIn.
We are here especially for you as unique professional, to come alongside you and partner with you, as you work on a (architecture / urban / development / policy / land / water / climate) curriculum, so that you can offer effective and resilient education in its simplest form.
