For the winter term 2021, the Wegener Center for Climate and Global Change offers a few courses that are not embedded in a curriculum, but provide exciting competences for students. For elective topics, we suggest:

Tuesday, 13:15 – 14:45
- Seminar Social science approaches to sustainability:
Get familiar with concepts and methods used in the field. The course explores the sustainability concepts and their applications in social science research and practice with a focus on economics, global environmental problems, renewable energy sources and possible future scenarios.
Thursday, 13:30 – 15:00
The sustainability4u lecture series organized by the nine Styrian universities/colleges addresses Crisis and Awareness Change (in German). Every Wednesday from 6 pm to 8 pm possible solutions are presented and will be discussed with the audience.
