The Luxury trap

1. School/Organization, where the practice is collected:
Torstad School

2. Description
The concept is built on the TV-show “The Luxury trap” where people get help organizing their finances. The students work in pairs as one “person”.
Each pair gets different roles with different educations and jobs, and also salary. They start by finding a place to live (rent), they must find out all kinds of living costs, taxes, and relevant information for understanding personal finances. After a while they were also paired up with another pair, so four students were working together as one “couple”.

Along the way, they encounter various challenges (injuries/fines/holidays/etc.), which lead to changed financial status, changed living situation (buying a home), changed marital status, etc.

The project runs over several weeks.
