Lecture series

Our lectures take place every week in winter semester. Every week adifferent  lecturer gives a presentation about Sustainability or Global Climate Change. Therefore, all lectures have a different topic, but in the frame of ecological, social and economic sustainability. A diversity of content is given to gain a diversified knowledge. At the end of the term, an exam takes place. 3 credit points can be earned.
