Summer University 2017


Back to the roots - how we lived when there was no technology

Organized by AEGEE-Bergamo

In cooperation with AEGEE-Academy

Back to the roots - how we lived when there was no technology Profile Picture
Imagine one day you wake up and you have been thrown back to an age when technology did not prevail in our daily lives.

Would you be able to find your way even without Google Maps? Would you be able to make your lunch and dinner instead of buying pre-prepared meals? Would you find an alternative to your weekly workout in one of the most exclusive gym in town? Would you be able to make your soul mate fall in love with you even without a like on Tinder?

Let’s set Smartphones and tablets aside and come to Bergamo! We want to challenge you and your addiction to technological devices for 12 days: treasure hunts, guided tours, games, competitions, workshops, parties and even more are going to take over your favourite Apps!

You will realize you can do more and better than your Apps do and you will be able to add 30 more people to the friend-list of your life...we don’t guarantee likes, comments or share to you, but hugs, feelings and real emotions!
