Sustainability Talks - Lecture with Prof. Renn postponed to next semester

The lecture by Prof. Dr. Ortwin Renn, entitled "The Governance of complex Systems: a systemic Approach to a Sustainable Energy Transition" will not take place on January, 24. We will inform you about a new date as soon as possible.

During the current winter semester 2018/2019 the Department of Sustainable Systems Engineering (INATECH) hosts an interdisciplinary lecture series on topis related to sustainable development - the "Sustainability Talks".

For the Sustainability Talks 2018/2019, some of the most prominent scientific thought leaders who work on sustainability out of different disciplines and from different perspectives, have agreed to come to Freiburg. You will soon find more information about the individual events on the homepage of the Sustainability Center Freiburg.
