How do you make energy out of wind and cow dung? What does the tree trunk from the Grunewald tell us about global warming? These and other future-oriented issues on sustainable development were the subjects of the SchülerUni for Sustainability and Climate Protection.
From 24th to 28th September 2018 the Freie Universität Berlin hosted about 1924 students from 57 schools of Berlin already for the second time this year.
