"Beyond the Plate": Second Sustainability Week at the FH Salzburg

"Whose planet is it?" - This is the motto of the second Sustainability Week at FH Salzburg. Daily keynote speeches and discussions will take place during the week of November 20-24, 2023. The week will conclude on Friday with workshops and a world café.

The event series in November deals with the topic "Whose planet is it?". The aim is to explore the question of whether climate justice and a sustainable society are possible with the current understanding of property in various dimensions.

From November 20 - 24, 2023, there will be a daily keynote lecture at 5 pm at the Urstein Campus of the Salzburg University of Applied Sciences, followed by a discussion. Several workshops will be offered on Friday. In addition, selected courses at the Salzburg University of Applied Sciences, the Paris Lodron University of Salzburg, the Mozarteum University and the University of Teacher Education will open courses dealing with sustainability to interested parties.
