Building a Sustainable Future / Germany

6 August 2018

20 July 2018 - 6 August 2018

In light of global climate change and unsustainable practices, sustainability has necessarily become a hot topic of discussion. Current climatic changes are a phenomenon that goes beyond countries and continents; an unnatural process that has been caused by humankind and is undeniable and inevitable, unless action is taken and promises are kept.
The UWC Short Course “Building a Sustainable Future” will touch on economic, environmental and social sustainability – and their several intersections – to give young participants a chance to rethink sustainability in its complexity and with its challenges.
These themes will be explored through different workshops from economic, environmental and social sustainability perspectives. Participants will be enabled to engage in discussions on sustainability critically and envision the world in terms of a sustainable future.
