EUDAIMONIA Summer School 2018 - Understanding Humans in Change

Eudaimonia Institute and the University of Oulu Graduate School are co-hosting the 2nd Eudaimonia Summer School on 20-24 August 2018. The summer school’s theme this year is “Understanding humans in change”, which is also one of the university’s research focus areas.

We explore the complex dynamics of global, digital, environmental and economic change on current human interaction and on communities and cultures over time. Our research identifies and explains the reasons, processes and practices involved in these changes, shows how humans adapt to them, and predicts the effects they will have on humanity in the future.

Multidisciplinary research activities in the focus area are coordinated by the Eudaimonia Institute. Research is conducted mainly in the Faculty of Humanities, Faculty of Education, Faculty of Science and Oulu Business School.
