You are warmly invited you to the Sustainability Summit 2015, organized by the Sustainability Center Freiburg. The Summit will take place from October 19-20, 2015, in Freiburg.
At the Sustainability Summit 2015, internationally renowned scholars, decision makers, business experts and distinguished sustainability leaders will jointly discuss the major challenges of our time:
- How can technology and engineering become a driving force in sustainability?
- How can research contribute more directly to the grand challenges such as the transformation of the energy systems?
- Can we learn from nature to solve human-made problems much more?
- How do we manage to limit climate change and at the same time adapt to its impacts?
These and other questions will be treated in several thematic sessions. Analogous to the four main research topics of the Sustainability Center Freiburg, there will be one session to the Societal and Ecological Transformation of our society, to Energy Systems, to Sustainable Materials and to Resilience Engineering.
The Sustainability Summit will be hosted by the Sustainability Center Freiburg. The center is a cooperation between the five Fraunhofer-Institutes located in Freiburg, the University of Freiburg, sustainability-oriented companies and important societal actors.
Together they perform research activities, create sustainable innovations, install new teaching opportunities for students, organize workshops for experts and host conferences such as the Sustainability Summit.
Further information on the conference and its topics will be available shortly under www.sustainability-summit.de.
