E-paper "Ideas for Tomorrow’s Sustainable University"

As early as 1999, the environmental ethicist Konrad Ott questioned whether or not the concept of sustainability can also be applied to knowledge. This is one of a number of issues dealt with in our e-paper "Ideas for Tomorrow’s Sustainable University": What role can universities play in moves towards a society which thinks and acts sustainably? Spin-offs have already been transforming research results into sustainable products and services for many years, but what is the influence of processes developed in this area of research on new teaching and learning methods? Not least, we also seek to adopt an internal perspective: how do organisations, students, and employees handle their own resources? The e-paper aims not only to answer the aforementioned questions, but also to give impetus to new questions. In addition, it sees us present selected ideas taken from the "UniGestalten" competition – which range from an innovative "Global Congress for Sustainability" to a "Public Welfare Balance Sheet for Universities".
