Spring is finally approaching, bringing the Sustainability Spring Days based at KIT along with it! And this year, for the first time, also for EPICUR students! We would like to cordially invite you to join the Sustainability Spring Days at KIT from March 22nd – 25th, 2021 – this year as an all virtual event!
- Register here (Registration is open until March 14th, 11:59 pm).
There are 20 spots available for students of all EPICUR partner universities. Students can achieve 2 – 4 credit points. Please check with an adviser at your home institution whether EPICUR courses will be recognised in your programme for the ECTS specified (e.g., as an elective). If this isn’t possible, you can still participate in the spring days as an extracurricular activity.
We will offer a large selection of workshops, lectures and excursions (many of which will be offered in English). Among others, topics like global climate change, personnel sustainability, climate policies, as well as technological and social innovations will be covered.
You will have the opportunity to discuss with students, staff members, lecturers and researchers from various disciplines and to get involved with sustainability actors from both the civil society and businesses.
The public keynote speech by Prof. Dr Maja Göpel on Monday, March 22nd at 6 pm will mark the official opening of the project days: the political economist Prof. Dr Maja Göpel, director of research at THE NEW INSTITUTE in Hamburg, will speak about “We design the future – the exciting interaction between freedom and responsibility”.
In the following three days, more than 20 workshops and excursions will take place, providing insights into the wide field of sustainable development. The virtual exhibition “Fair of Opportunities” will offer a platform for exchange, information and discussion with more than 30 initiatives, groups and companies from the Karlsruhe region.
We are looking forward to welcoming you at our next Sustainability Spring Days at KIT and experiencing an inspiring and exciting event along with you!
