Learning for a sustainable world: This is the motto of SchülerUni (for sustainability + climate) at the Free University Berlin. From March 2012 until the end of 2015 we offer the program in eight schoolchildren universities, always in spring and autumn.
The special thing about us is our topical focus! For one week everything revolves around sustainability and climate change issues. We open lecture halls, seminar rooms, laboratories, solar roofs, the weather station and the Botanical Garden to make the concepts of sustainability and climate protection come alive for students and teachers.
Participation and Experience: Youths can experience the key themes of sustainable development through experiments around renewable energies, energy tours, art workshops, future workshops, writing workshops, simulations, role-plays and field trips.
A full weeks program: For our week-long program, we invite schoolchildren of the 5th and 6th year (10 to13-year-olds) in school groups as well as their teachers. Attendance is free of charge for all events.
UN Decade 2013 Theme: Mobility! The SchülerUni programme 2013 is thematically based on the annual theme "mobility" of the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development. Many local institutions, such as "Verkehrsclub Deutschland (VCD)" and "Junior Campus der Stiftung Deutsches Technikmuseum Berlin" are participating in the current program.
Service for teachers: Teachers have the opportunity to inform themselves about Education for Sustainable Development in our accompanying training and learn practical and suitable suggestions for teaching their classes.
