(E) U AGAINST CO2: Lecture series on climate action
Current political developments make it clear – climate change and energy transition are one of the most important topics the European Union faces at the moment. After the great success with over 600 registrations in each of the last four semesters, the lecture series (FA)U against CO2 will take place in the summer semester of 2022 again – this time under the new name and EELISA umbrella “(E)U against CO2 – Let’s make Europe better together!”
This year, it is jointly organized by the Department of Ecology and Sustainability at FAU, the European University Alliance EELISA and the Central Institute for Scientific Reflection and Key Qualifications (ZiWiS) at FAU.
