Joint Summer School SustainMV

We Make Sustainability a Priority

This sustainability summer school is jointly presented by all universities in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern (MV), north-east Germany, and is open to international Bachelor, Master and PhD students and postdoctoral researchers and academics.

The overarching theme for this unique event is sustainability in all subject fields, showcasing opportunities for transformation through science and education for a sustainable future.

Academics from all MV universities, who are all experts in their respective fields of sustainability, will present their work and research. They are scheduled to give exciting talks, host fun, interactive workshops and virtually invite you to their laboratories. They will give you a thorough introduction to what sustainability research in MV looks like.

Session topics include: Smart bioenergy & waste management, Sustainable mobility, Sustainable tourism, Sustainability in the Baltic Sea Region, Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Battery use in agriculture, an online lab tour through the world of hydrogen and many more.
