Institute of Continuing Education (ICE)


Because of the impact worldwide of the coronavirus (COVID-19), the 2020 International Summer Programmes have been replaced by the Virtual Summer Festival of Learning

This new, four-week programme will immerse participants in a series of lectures and seminars designed to address a wide range of topics related to our future. Visionaries, philosophers, politicians, scientists, engineers and writers all try to anticipate the future. This programme draws on specific examples. Topics are planned to include artificial intelligence, biodiversity, bio materials, cancer research, climate change, currency, existential risk, international business, the international order, medicine, security, sustainability and visual culture.  Debate will focus on current ‘visions’, but will also be enriched by past literary, historical and political predictions.
