In Germany, meanwhile, a university offers “idleness grants” to applicants who can seriously commit to doing nothing.

The University of Fine Arts in Hamburg said it will actually pay three people with $1,900 each.

The applications will then form part of an exhibition called “The School of Inconsequentiality: Towards A Better Life.”

It aims to explore the relationship between how society encourages sustainability and how it places value on material success.

“If you say you are not going to move for a week, then that’s impressive,” said Friedrich von Borries, the program’s architect and theorist.
