Description

“Lectures for Future“ is a lecture series with guest lecturers from various universities and research institutions, most of them part of the Scientists4Future, working on the most pressing societal and ecological challenges and their potential solutions. The lecture series is taking place for the 5th semester in a row, everytime at several higher education institutions, each of them with their own unique programming. More information on the initiative and the programs of the last semester (summer 2021) can be found here.

At Angewandte, we will host six guest lectures on various topics related to sustainability (see below). Typically, lectures will be 90 minutes long including discussion (17:30-19:00). We will start off with a general overview of sustainability concepts and our approaches and personal understanding of it. As the lectures address quite diverse topics, we will also dedicate time to clarifying open questions and contextualizing the content in order to establish a "golden thread" for the course.

"The future is collective"

As we do not want you to only be listeners but also creators, we will make use of the guest lectures as well as relevant literature as a basis for artistic reflections. These reflections could be in the form of posters, collages and/or Illustrations/scribbles, developed collectively in small groups. We will provide a respective input in one of the first sessions and dedicate two blocked sessions for working on these visual reflections together. You will then share your work with the course and maybe some of the guest lecturers at the end of the semester.

We are looking forward to the following guest lectures:

25.10.2021, 17:30-19:00 (online via ZOOM): Dipl. Geol. Christian Masurenko (ECTerra) - Responsible mining: the example of tantalum mining in Liberia
