Radical Rethink! The Future of Ageing Societies

  • Team up with talents from other faculties
  • Combine theory and practice
  • Graduate with a special recognition
  • Strengthen your professional network

Your future will be very different to that of your parents and grandparents. The world around us is changing fast, and radically new solutions and ideas are needed to properly respond.

Radical Rethink! is a one-year extra-curricular talent programme for ambitious and forward-looking students, who wish to integrate their personal abilities within interdisciplinary talent teams. It is probably best described as a think tank rather than an ordinary study programme. Student teams are challenged to create new ideas that breach boundaries and paradigms to approach solutions of burning issues in ageing societies of the 21st century.

Take a moment to watch our film and hear what some of the students from Radical Rethink! 2019/2020 have to say:

Can you really make a difference? Yes. It is all about ideas. It is about being enthusiastic, dedicated, and brave enough to just do it.

How do we take care of you? You will benefit from the synergy created in teams and from the higher level of intelligence deriving from the connection of team members with radically diverse talents. You will be held by individual and team mentors, by dedicated teachers, and by a large portfolio of standing experts, inside and outside SDU. 

Will you have the necessary time and resources? Yes. Programme activities are scheduled at concentrated times during 6 boot camps outside normal study hours. It will require commitment and investment, but the programme has the benefit of being very flexible, since scheduled activities are few.

Radical Rethink! is an initiative developed within CPop - Interdisciplinary Centre on Population Dynamics.
