Interdisciplinary Symposium for Pupils

Whether it is financial crises, natural disasters, important exams, drugs or just the game – how do we assess risk, how do we deal with risk? What is behind this term, how is it viewed in different disciplines and what role does risk play in our everyday lives? In 2013, the Junge Akademie organized an interdisciplinary symposium on this framing topic. Teams of pupils participated with their own proposals for topics.
