The Centre operates in a continuum from research to project implementation, but also as a catalyst to multiply knowledge, skills and good practice in climate and sustainable energy finance. We combine technical know-how, applied research, and academic courses to deliver first rate classroom learning. At the same time, we provide a collaborative space to formulate forward-thinking ideas for the post-Paris Agreement implementation phase, where agendas and issues are constantly changing. We build a creative learning environment around some core principles to ensure a more tangible experience for the participants:
We take you on a journey to demystify climate and RE finance, delving into case studies and learning from discussions and group work with a clear hands-on focus tailored to the needs and realities of developing, emerging and industrialized countries.
We foster a strong combination of theory and practice in the classes, ensuring interactions with experts and practitioners. Training relies not only on classroom style teaching but interaction, visualisation, application, facilitation, moderation and ongoing evaluation. A joint excursion completes the programmes and additionally caters to the creative learning environment.
To help you to think outside the box we are going to spend time in the Frankfurt School Innovation Lab to explore design thinking, learning new concepts to tackle different situations in our ever changing world.
Networking and Entertainment
Participants from previous Academies have brought a wealth of diversification and valuable and distinct experiences which adds to the overall experience. There will be many opportunities to engage, network and socialise with peers from each Summer Academy course.
Despite an ambitious agenda, we also enjoy our downtime and will help you enjoy yours. Our evening programme in Frankfurt will take you on a city tour and you will be able to enjoy traditional German food. We also invite you over for a relaxing barbeque at Frankfurt School to enjoy a German summer evening.
