With its overarching theme – “Towards a Sustainable Transformation – Climate, Energy and Nature in a Changing World” – the 8th Potsdam Summer School will in 2022 continue the transdisciplinary and interactive series of events that has been held annually in Potsdam, Germany since 2014.

The aim of the Potsdam Summer School is to bring together talented early-career scientists and young professionals operating in the private sector, governmental agencies, and non-governmental organisations from many different parts of the world to discuss frontier (research) questions on future sustainable development.

We also intend to enable participants to engage with various sectors of the public in their home countries. Our goal is to improve science awareness and help to develop informed opinions and enhance the transferable skills of researchers and practitioners. Experts, stakeholders, and guest lecturers from high level national and international institutes and organisations will contribute knowledge and insights to the Summer School programme which will comprise lectures, various discussion formats, and interactive group work activities.

Thus, the Potsdam Summer School provides a unique opportunity for all participants to foster international cooperation and an interdisciplinary exchange of ideas.

The organisers intend to conduct the 10-day programme in a format whereby all participants and speakers will be present in Potsdam. The entire programme will be conducted in English.

Should it be the case that the overall situation regarding the current pandemic precludes in-person attendance the organisers will revert to a virtual format.

We are looking forward to receiving applications from young professionals from various backgrounds.
