Did you know that the concentration of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere, as of May 2020, was the highest in human history? The impact of climate change will increase steadily if we don’t (re)act. No one is protected from global warming but everyone is empowered to fight for the future of our planet, the future of our descendants.
In EELISA, we believe that progress is only possible when people strive to learn together and join forces. That is why we are happy to give you an opportunity to delve deeper into the questions of climate change and protection!
After the great success with over 650 registrations at FAU in the last semesters, we would like to open up our lecture series to the EELISA audience. As part of the lecture series, we invited experts from different parts of the world who share their opinions and give you complex insights into ecological problems reaching from technological, economic, and juridical to political perspectives.
The lecture series takes place every Wednesday at 6:15-7:45 pm (UTC +2) in Zoom, from the 14th of April to the 14th of July (as of Summer Semester 2021).
Moreover, you will have the opportunity to earn an EELISA certificate by passing an online test. Please note that a certificate of attendance is not possible. The course is valued with 2.5 ECTS at FAU in the area of key qualifications. Please consult the study coordinator for your degree program about the possibilities of recognition at your home institution. The exam will take place online on the 28th of July, 10:00-11:00 a.m. (UCT +2)
