Time for immersion, collaboration and community
If you want to spend a little more time, and get in depth with a sustainable issue, then an Actory Works innovation programme is the obvious choice. We start new innovation programmes approx. 4 times a year, and have programmes in both Danish and English.
Actory Works are innovation programmes that revolve around changing topics. You do not need to have an idea of what you want to do before signing up. We have a number of issues that can be dived into, but you can also choose your own within the current topic.

Actory Works: Making Campus Sustainable
Do you also want a ‘greener’ campus? Now you have the opportunity to make your campus more sustainable! At the next Actory Works programme, we work with sustainability on campus and you can choose between 4 sub-topics:
- Waste and recycling
- Sustainable Festival
At the first workshop, we will form smaller, interdisciplinary teams based on your specific interest. You will together select a project you will work on for the next 10 weeks.
There will be workshops every other Wednesday at 17.00-20.00, which consists of a professional inspirational presentation, after which you will work with your team to develop your project together. Along the way you will get various tools and sparring that will help you along the way.

What do we expect of you?
When you start an innovation programme, you commit to stay in the programme throughout the period.
You agree in your group how much time you can invest – the expected time is in average between 2-4 hours a week – you are always welcome to spend more time than that.
In Actory, we care about and focus on the interdisciplinary meeting and diversity. Everyone is welcome. You do not need any special prerequisites – come as you are – and we will help you find your place at Actory.
Participation in Actory Works is on voluntary basis and you do not obtain ECTS credits.
What is in it for you?

- You use your subject knowledge in practice
- You get the opportunity to deal with sustainable issues you encounter in your everyday life
- You become a part of a unique community of students with similar interests
- A lot of free coffee
- You and your team are also invited to work from Actory’s office space at Studenterhuset.
