Health, Sustainability & Entrepreneurship

Empowering people to create a sustainable future


for our kitchen


A project course consist of a combination of one or more short courses and an optional number of project weeks and can last from 3 weeks to a year.


The short courses focus on a particular theme, which is systematically covered from many perspectives. The short courses are quite intensive and packed with information. The beginner usually experience them as a comprehensive introductory and the more experienced feel it’s a chance to dive deeper and immerse themselves in the subject.

Whether you are experienced or beginner, you may expect to use some time to integrate the results in your life. 


The aim of the project weeks is to integrate the knowledge you have gained during the short courses into your life & your projects. During the project weeks you and your group focus on developing one or more green projects with the guidance of a mentor. During the next short course, you dive deeper into another area, which you may then integrate in your project…

Some special project opportunities you have on Avnø are to be trained as a macrobiotic or vegan chef or a transformational coach.
