The symposium "Connect Ideas – Maximize Impact" taught us about the importance of the "majority world" and “education” on our path for higher impact.
Therefore, we are inviting 10 young graduates primarily from the "majority world" to connect us to parts of the world where we have had almost no impact in the past. Our goal is to gain knowledge and learn about the possibilities of climate engineering in parts of the world where we believe the greatest changes will take place in the near future. We hope to increase impact by connecting ideas through our TS Academy fellows returning home and applying their knowledge.
The Transsolar Academy offers a one-year fellowship in climate engineering covering tuition, travel, room and board.
The program will provide lectures, tutorials and project work. The comprehensive and practical training combines theoretical background with hands-on experience realized in form of project work. Students will not only work with and learn from Transsolar staff mentors and our partners, but also learn from each other.
When and where?
The Academy will begin in October 2013.
The Academy will take place in the Transsolar Office.
