Designskolen i Kolding laver innovation for Læsø Tang.

Designskolen i Kolding laver innovation for Læsø Tang.

Designskolen i Kolding – Danmarks mindste universitet – gennemfører hvert år en DesignCamp for de studerende.

Sammen med udvalgte virksomheder tager man på en rejse ud i fremtiden under temaet: What if …, altså Hvad nu hvis…?

I de 14 dage campen varer mødes udvalgte virksomheder med de studerende for at inspirere og udvikle fælles visioner, hvor muligheder er i højsædet og begrænsninferne for en stund ikke tæller med.

I 2021 måtte DesignCampen gennemføres som et virtuelt forløb, hvor de studerende fra hele verden og virksomhederne mødtes i cyberspace.

Overskriften for DesignCamp 2021 var Islands Matters, og de to øer, der indgik i samarbejdet, var Læsø og Bornholm.

Læsø Tang var sammen med Læsø Tangtage og Læsø Fiskeindustri repræsentanter for Læsø.

De studerendes udfordring var at skabe en synergi mellem Sundhed, bæredygtighed og smagsegenskaber i tangen som fødevarer og i alle mulige andre anvendelsesområder. Svaret var et fosrlag om at skabe og etablere et innovationscenter for tang. Altså et tanguniversitet Og for rigtigt at understrege, hvad det handler om, var forlaget til universitets navn meget sigende Kelp Universeaty. Kelp er det engelske ord for de store bladalger.

Vi skylder os selv at videreudvikle ideen.

Oplægget til samarbejde og visioner for hele DesignCampen var fra designskolen formuleret sådan:

About Island Matters

What if we could explore possible courses of action or new values in isolated areas in

need of self-sufficiency and regeneration?

The year 2020 may be one of the most transformative years of our lifetimes. The normalities we enjoyed at the beginning of the 21st century are no longer possible. Traveling on a whim is frowned upon, hugging in public give us the feeling of having done wrong, and living sustainably is imperative.

We have entered the era of rethinking what our normality means. This has made us realise that the societal systems we have built may no longer be in line with values we deem important.

Islands have certain qualities that make for a more plausible study and exploration of new possibilities, causes and effects. Much like the rest of the world, they need new reconfigurations of life. The interconnectivity of issues within an islands geographical limitation might put extra pressure for these reconfigurations to happen urgently and precisely.

At DesignCamp 2021 Island Matters – Speculative Fabulations of Possible Futures we take our starting point in Danish islands, which we will use as case studies for pilot projects. We aim to gain research insights from the rest of the world to arrive at potential scenarios that have a global relevance. Under the three research focuses the institution is committed to: Design for Planet, Design for People and Design for Play, students will approach specific Danish islands and outskirts as case studies.
