Students and lecturers of the Environment and Energy, B.Sc. degree programme dealt intensively with the effects of climate change as part of the Lectures for Future initiative
On June 18, 2019 students and lecturers of the Environment and Energy, B.Sc. degree programme dealt intensively with the effects of climate change as part of the Lectures for Future initiative and discussed ways of significantly reducing the increase in greenhouse gases in future.
In the lecture "Innovative Solutions" by Prof. Dr. Blitgen-Heinecke, students presented the causes and consequences of climate change and shed light on the self-accelerating changes that occur if we do not act consistently.
In her lecture "Fundamentals of Chemistry", Prof. Dr. Buder presented possible solutions to avoid CO2 emissions and/or using CO2 in steel production.
The contributions and lectures met with great interest among the students. In general, topics such as the future challenges posed by climate change, the reduction of greenhouse gases and sustainability are of great importance in the Environment and Energy programme. Climate scientists agree that the coming years will determine whether the global rise in temperature can be limited to values below 2°C or not.
