The Sustainability Summer School in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern
SustainMV takes place from Monday 16 August to Friday 20 August 2021, fully digital with live streamed sessions.
It 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.
We look forward to welcoming attendees from all over the world, and hope to give them a glimpse into sustainability in MV – in all areas of society, in research and education, in business and in life.
Registration closes 8th August, midnight CEST (Central European Summer Time, i.e. UTC+2).
We make sustainability a priority
In the summer of 2021 SustainMV will take place for the very first time. This one of a kind event is a joint project of six universities who have made sustainability their prioroty. That is: Universität Greifswald, Universität Rostock, Hochschule für Musik und Theater Rostock, Hochschule Wismar, Hochschule Stralsund and Hochschule Neubrandenburg.
Together, all universities in MV will present north-east Germany as the fantastic location for sustainability education, research and business that it is.
This peerless cooperation between all universities of one region is a huge step towards a joint perspective on international work and finding new and maybe even surprising potentials. Furthermore, it creates a common higher education area in north-east Germany, which would no doubt be a benefit for academics and students alike.
SustainMV will promote MV as a unique location of higher education and as a great place to study internationally.
