How do you cultivate a beginner’s mind? Where can you challenge yourself to find new ideas no matter what stage you’re at in your life and career? At CIID, experimentation is at the core of what we do—and when the process itself is more important than the outcomes, the experience becomes a true catalyst for growth.

CIID Summer School is your chance to rediscover your passion and reinvent yourself with the tools you need to tackle pressing global problems in surprising new ways. We’re bringing our dynamic platform for learning back to Costa Rica (April 20–May 1, 2020) and Copenhagen (July 6–August 7, 2020). This is a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in two totally different contexts—Copenhagen as the world capital of design, with a wide variety of workshops to choose from; and Costa Rica as an international hub of life-centred innovation, with workshops held deep in the rainforest at La Selva Biological Station. (More than 16 countries were represented among the participants at our Costa Rica edition last year.)

Join us for Summer School in Costa Rica or Copenhagen!

The Summer School experience is transformative. Industry experts drawn from the world’s most forward-thinking organisations facilitate the hands-on workshops and galvanise the cross-pollination of ideas. Participants from all around the world, drawn from a wide variety of backgrounds, amplify the spirit of risk-taking and collaborative learning. This multidisciplinary, multicultural environment shapes a space for creative problem-solving. You’ll emerge reinvigorated and ready to return to your career with a network of like-minded individuals and a toolkit of skills for innovation.
