In 2012, the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research proclaimed a Science Year to support sustainable developments and projects. During this year, the future of Planet Earth was discussed, asking questions like: How can we protect our environment? How do we want to live in the future? Do we have to change our economy? The Ministry supports more than 500 international projects in 62 countries on five continents to further support sustainability.
