First interdisciplinary Munich Climate School

28.09.2021 – 01.10.2021

General description

"What we do today decides what the world will look like tomorrow" (Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach, 1830-1916).

The escalation of the climate crisis is omnipresent. Serious climate-related developments, such as the increasing frequency of extreme weather events - not least the massive flood disaster in Germany in recent weeks - make us urgently aware that climate change is threatening humanity globally and already today. This makes it all the more important that science and research devote themselves to tackling it. Climate change concerns almost all research areas at our university. We are therefore firmly convinced that the right way to deal with climate change can only be found in interdisciplinary dialogue.

Even though climate change affects all of us, a very special focus in terms of overcoming the climate crisis is on the younger generation. Therefore, we want to give you in particular the opportunity to get to know and understand the interdisciplinary basics of climate change at an early stage, so that you will be able to prepare adequately for the challenges of the present and the future.

With this in mind, the first interdisciplinary Munich Climate School will take place as an online event from Tuesday, 28.09.2021, to Friday, 01.10.2021. Over 20 renowned lecturers from the LMU, including from the fields of natural sciences, law, economics and political science, as well as philosophy and medicine, are looking forward to giving you a sound insight into the scientific basis of climate change and its (also) subject-specific problems.

Hopefully we will succeed in arousing your interest in our first Munich Climate School. If you are interested in participating, which is free of charge, please send us a tabular CV and a short letter of motivation to by 07.09.2021 at the latest.
