Insight for a better digital solution

A few months back we received funding from the Educational Department of Norway to create and implement a digital solution, looking at how we could make our program more seamless and available to more than just our own students. Read more about it here.

Diving into a learning journey about The Future of Education, how technology can play a part in learning, and meeting and talking to developers, and companies offering learning management systems, we ended up on a bigger learning journey to San Francisco, together with Katapult Future Fest. Read more about our trip here.

Back in Oslo we’ve continued learning and exploring how we in the best way possible can create a system, not only for our students, but for everyone out there that needs guidance in how to succeed with a project. We belive we can help impactmakers develop their ideas and projects, being part of creating sustainable solutions to problems we’re facing, not only in Oslo and Norway, but globally.

Before getting to deep into developing our solution we asked a group of former students at Emergence School of Leadership to help us answer to some of our greatest assumptions, test different ways of building the platform, the look and feel of it and different ways of learning.
This was very useful and we’re left with loads of new insights and learnings, ready to develop our ideas further!

Thanks to everyone taking part! We’re looking forward to inviting you in again to test the first prototype!

Emergence Refill | a knowledge series

Emergence Refill was started up in the summer of 2017 to look at how Emergence as a knowledge Hub can share our knowledge, not only with the 28 students that are at the school, but with our growing network of alumni and other partners and collaborators. The day-to-day staff at Emergence School of Leadership and our amazing group of industry specialists that teaches at the school (see and read more about them here) holds interesting perspectives and knowledge that we think more than just our students can benefit from. There’s also been a need for a space where the Emergence network can meet, mingle and talk about the challenges, thoughts and experiences they are facing. For all these reasons we decided to create Emergence Refill!

The event series is divided between morning and night events, all hosted at our favourite hangout Skippergata 22.

On Wednesday we hosted our first ever Refill Night with principal at Emergence School of Leadership, Thomas Helgø. He talked on why the role as a project manager is more relevant and important than ever, giving our alumni network a closer look into how the methodology of the school is in constant change and the steps needed today to create interesting, sustainable and successful projects.

Over 50 x-Emergence students attended and all helped shape and contribute with ideas to how we should develop the Refill concept further.

Thank you all for coming — and see you soon for Refill Morning! Next event will be open for our extended network and friends, so feel free to bring along someone you think would be interested! Follow our Facebook page Emergence School of Leadership for info on the next event.

Creating good spaces for learning

Emergence School of Leadership has over the 14 years since it started up changed it’s look, feel and location numerous times!
The school is today situated in the interesting neighbourhood of Fredensborg, door to door with the ever growing co-workingspace 657, which is the home to some of Oslo (and Norways!) most exciting startups and companies within the creative industry.

The school’s entrance is almost hidden, but once you notice the sign above the door and realise that the school is situated in a small three story house, you imediately get drawn in. Since the school moved from its last location in Karlstadgata on Grûnerløkka in 2014, 3 teams have used the space well (day & night). This spring is was time to upgrade the rooms a little, preparing them for the next team to start after summer. It got us thinking about what creates good learning environments. What zones does the students, facilitators and the industry specialists that comes to teach at the school need? How might we change the atmosphere in the kitchen that barely gets any natural light, by changing the colour on the walls? Could we create more and smaller work zones for team work?

Emergence Projects | Vega was wild

Oh Vega. With endless skies and unbelievably clear water. Where everyone knows everyone. With birds and wild sheep everywhere. Where the sun never sets, and we never slept.

The last week of May we headed to The Vega Archipelago in Northern Norway. FINALLY. After spending countless hours doing research on Vega and how it became a World Heritage Site in 2004, it was time to travel up north to take a closer look at it ourselves. These days we are working on a very exciting project for The Vega Archipelago World Heritage Foundation. We posted about the project earlier too, but let me remind you: We are designing a communication concept for one of the first UNESCO World Heritage Centres in Norway!

The World Heritage Centre at Vega is planned to open in 2018. The aim is to communicate the past, the present and the future of the World Heritage through an experience and activity based exhibition. Our team was one out of three agencies that were invited to pitch for the project, and we ended up winning it! We’re absolutely thrilled and super proud, to say the least. David & Goliath kinda thing, you know.

Vega was even more wild and beautiful than we could ever imagine. Such a fantastic experience! This trip was an important part of our research, and it’s been invaluable to our understanding of the project to experience the nature first hand, meet the locals and above all: feel the eider down. It is mind-blowing how light is – and surprisingly warm too. ‘The Eiderdown Effect’ is magic. You’ll know what I’m talking about when you go visit in 2018.

As part of our project, we’ve created a documentation blog where we post stories from Vega and about the process of working back in Oslo. All of a sudden we’ve become bloggers – project bloggers. We find it interesting with a transparent process, and it allows us to interact and with the audience — most importantly the locals at Vega, giving us feedback and sharing their expectations. And all of you, if you want to get involved. We promise beautiful photos (at least the ones from our trip), so check out the blog at villevakrevega.no.

…okay, then. Have a look at some of them here as well:

New Project | Ville, Vakre Vega

Let’s loosly translate that title into wildly beautiful Vega. We’re talking about Vegaøyan – The Vega Archipelago in the northern part of Norway, just south of the Arctic Circle. After being inscribed on the UNESCO List of World Natural and Cultural Heritage in 2004, a World Heritage Centre is being built at Vegaøyan. And guess what? We are developing the concept and design for the main exhibition!

 

Being part of Emergence and having access to the large network of extremely talented people, we believe we can do (almost) anything. We also believe we shouldn’t be doing this (big, important, exciting) project alone, so we teamed up with a few good people that are experts in their field:

 

Vidar Grande is the Sound Designer about to make Vegaøyan sound awesome, Eivind Lindbråten from Ways is the tech + programming genious and Benny Lund (Kunstverker) is the guy who makes sure the exhibition is actually possible to build. Last, but not least, we have Ida Skjefstad: born and raised at Vegaøyan, talented Experience Designer AND Emergence-graduate. She couldn’t be more perfect for the job.

 

Planning the World Heritage Centre has been a long process with a lot of companies involved, and we get to collaborate with a wide range of very talented people on this project. Including our very own Emergence’ers: Arvtakerne! This is a student team from Emergence School of Leadership working on the activity based part of the centre focusing on children and young people. They can accomplish a whole lot in their eight-week-project, and we’re excited to see the results! Follow @arvtakerne on Instagram.

 

All smiles,

Annike, Hilde + Ida Sofie

 


If you’re interested in knowing more about The Vega Archipelago:

“A cluster of dozens of islands centred on Vega, just south of the Arctic Circle, forms a cultural landscape of 103,710 ha, of which 6,930 ha is land. The islands bear testimony to a distinctive frugal way of life based on fishing and the harvesting of the down of eider ducks, in an inhospitable environment. There are fishing villages, quays, warehouses, eider houses (built for eider ducks to nest in), farming landscapes, lighthouses and beacons. There is evidence of human settlement from the Stone Age onwards. By the 9th century, the islands had become an important centre for the supply of down, which appears to have accounted for around a third of the islanders’ income. The Vega Archipelago reflects the way fishermen/farmers have, over the past 1,500 years, maintained a sustainable living and the contribution of women to eiderdown harvesting.”
