International Sustainability Workshop at USAAR

workshop poster

Saarland University will soon be hosting an international sustainability workshop from Monday, 3. April 2023 to Friday, 07. April 2023 (3rd and 7th April as dates for arrival and departure).
The deadline for the application is the 31 January.

The workshop intends to cover multiple fields of sustainability in the
academic environment and student’s engagement: the goal is not only to learn new things about sustainability and its role in different countries but also to discover how sustainability can be incorporated in academic structures.

At the end of the seminar, a common project will be developed together with the students to create a tool for international communication, cooperation and exchange to enhance university’s footprint.

What will await the participants?
A lot of international exchange! Since climate change affects every
country in the world, international cooperation and communication within
the young generation are now needed more than ever. Throughout various
workshops we will explore together as students how sustainability can be
realised on a micro- and a macro level.

Accommodation and travelling expenses will be financed by Transform4Europe. Accommodation in Saarbrücken will be organised by the student group “La Page Verte – die grüne Seite” which collects printed paper to produce new college blocks.

Who can participate?
The project is targeted at curious and openminded students from all
field of studies that either already participate in a sustainable
project at university or that already have a plan in mind and need help
or more information to start. After all, we come together to learn from
each other, to exchange ideas and inspire one another, so we don’t
expect people to already be an expert in everything.

Most importantly, the candidates must be motivated, open to exchange and willing to learn.
The number of candidates per university is limited to two students, but
we would highly recommend having a third candidate as a backup in case
of an inability to come. The workshop will be entirely in English. It is
therefore recommended that the participants have at least a B2 English
