How might we create learning experiences to enable anyone to see what role they play in creating a more sustainable future for our societies and planet? This is one of the core tenets of Nordic Rebels: creating learning experiences that help our students see the critical role they play in creating a brighter future for all of us. Learning is not about earning a diploma or a degree, but first and foremost it is about transformation – growing as a human being and helping our peers achieve the same.

In May 2019, the Finnish-Danish blended minor programme Nordic Rebels received a Danish Design Award in the Better Learning category. It emphasizes the famed Nordic values: democracy, student-centred learning, cuisine, and design-driven methods and processes. Essentially, a strong proposition on what learning could look like.
