Where shall we go?
Winter in Scandinavia is a remarkable experience. This tour will focus on three Nordic countries that have their own distinct flavour, within a culture of design. The focus of the tour is not just school, but places where learning and work occur - libraries, museums, universities, co-working hubs and workplaces.
