Education is a university's most effective tool for influencing society and meeting its public obligations. Thus, we need to ask how students can become educated citizens able to take part in and lead public discourse on what is worth protecting and how to do so. Education is a complex but major responsibility and we need to think about how to foster a serious concern for a sustainable future in our students.
In the activity area we present three projects which all should be fun, but which you can also adopt easily for other purposes of education:
Activity Role Play LGBTQ+: In the related activity, conference goers are asked to share rites of passage from their own cultures in the activity area, and consider how these may differ for sexual minorities.
Activity Insect Hotels and Seed Bombs: Participants are invited to get creative, making insect hotels and seed bombs in the activity area.
Activity The 'Sustainability Campus Walk': By using this app you start on a treasure hunt to find all the Sustainable Development Goals in the UHH campus and surroundings. By walking around the campus and answering puzzles with this app, you can see the active work the university is engaged in to co-create a better future.
