The project moves forward from the concept of the New European Bauhaus plan and aims at developing, testing, and disseminating an innovative methodology to be used by Vocational Education providers and trainers in decentralized areas to educate learners about sustainable development and social innovation.
The Post-Human Architect project intends to achieve these specific concrete objectives:
– Design and disseminate a framework of skills accompanying the green transition. Post-Human Architect skills framework will identify and describe those hard and soft skills with a specific reference to decentralized areas.
– Design, test and disseminate a training methodology with training tools to be used by VET trainers in their activities with learners from decentralized areas.
– Design, test and disseminate two educational games to practice the skills of Post-Human Architect in an informal, interactive and attractive way. The games will allow VET systems in decentralized areas to deliver a more attractive training offer.
– Create a certification system, in line with national and European qualification frameworks, for recognition and certification of Post-Human Architect skills. The European Skills Agenda highlights the importance for learners to prove their skills and communicate them when applying for further learning or for a job. The project will therefore provide VET organisations and learners with a recognised certificate linked with Europass.
The Post Human Architect project has developed a Competence framework based upon a best practice collection and focus group results in partners countries and with reference to the Post Human Architecture methodology and New European Bauhaus goal and values (EU, 2022)
Starting from the competence framework we are now developing a methodology to teach the future post-human architect how to manage a post-human project.

VET trainers, students, and community members coming from decentralised areas participated in the three-days training activity in Favara, Sicily, hosted by Farm Cultural Park. During the training sessions, we tested the methodology prepared by Sineglossa, exploring the territory, understanding the existing interconnections between the territory, the cultural heritage of the places that we visited, and possible conservative developments.
The activities done were evaluated by the participants, and thanks to their feedback and comments the methodology will be improved and adapted.
The last session of the meeting was dedicated to the development of the game, which will become a tool to teach the Post-Human architect principles.
Post Human Architecture involves public participation and integration of culture and community values. The need is always to repopulate a place and make it more attractive to live and work in. Create their own identity and sustainability, the reason for the project must be rooted in the community, history and culture, sometimes you use new technologies, to ensure their independence and participation to enable them to enhance the prosperity of the places. To speak the right language, and attract the right kind of tourists that will appreciate the place.
The project was presented to the community of Skálholt in South Western Iceland. In the meeting participated both long-time community members, newcomers and interested investors. Einurd will follow up on these relations throughout the project with involvement in focus groups and training activities.

Farm Cultural Park is one of the most influential independent cultural centers of the contemporary cultural world and one of the liveliest projects of rethinking and rebirth of dying cities.
When everything seemed doomed to collapse, a small Cultural Centre chose art and culture to renew a Historical Centre and to give a new identity and a future to a City with no past nor present.
It’s always very hard to explain what Farm Cultural Park is.
Every year thousands of artists, creatives, journalists or just visitors share their experiences to rethink new ways to live, work and be together.
For this reason, we talk about the”People’s Museum”.
Farm Cultural Park has been the winner of countless awards including the prestigious award of the American Foundation of the same name Curry Stone Design Prize, as one of the 100 international experiences that have produced the greatest social impact in the world in the last ten years and Human Design City Award; invited in 2012 and 2016 to the Venice Architecture Biennale and published in the most important national and international media such as The Guardian, Vogue and Domus.
In recent years, Farm Cultural Park has been presented in Washington, Pittsburgh and Detroit as a guest of the American State Department, at the Dublin Global Platform, a guest of the European Union, in Meishan in China, a guest of Unesco and in Abu Dhabi on the occasion of the World Urban Forum 10 hosted by the United Nations.
