Sustainability and transformation are a societal challenge that requires the cooperation of a wide range of actors and disciplines. In cooperation with the FH Aachen and the Catholic University of Applied Sciences Aachen, the event will examine and discuss the diverse dimensions of sustainability. Based on keynote speeches by various experts in the field of sustainability and transformation, current problems will be discussed across disciplines. 


Learning Outcomes

The course supports students in cross-university teams in developing their interdisciplinary competences. The work with practical social challenges is also intended to sensitise the students to social problems by critically and actively dealing with social and societal responsibility. Special attention is paid to the formation of networks from different disciplines and social actors in order to support the participants in developing their own code of action and thus generate actual impulses for action.
