Freie Universität Berlin actively promotes sustainability by contributing to a sustainable development in research, teaching and administration. In Winter 2015/16, Junges Wissenschaftsforum Dahlem will present different perspectives and projects, inform the participants about funding options and provide a platform for discussions with leading sustainability experts.
