TU Berlin for Future – The lecture series on climate protection


In 2023, the highest surface temperatures since weather records began were measured on land and in the world's oceans. Yet still too little is being done worldwide to reduce emissions of climate gases and thus limit the rise in temperature. Germany's climate protection measures also remain insufficient to make a fair contribution to climate protection.

In the winter semester 2023/2024, the interdisciplinary climate lecture "TU Berlin for Future" will once again cover a broad range of topics related to climate protection by TU scientists and external experts. Prof. Dr. Stefan Rahmstorf from the Potsdamer-Institut für Klimafolgenforschung (PIK) will address the explosive nature of the current global climate changes and how much room for maneuver still exists in his keynote speech. The other presentations will address climate (protection)-relevant issues around the energy transition, the building sector, urban development and the bioeconomy, as well as questions of the democratic shaping of the transformation and aspects of justice. Finally, a look at the TU Berlin's path to becoming a climate-neutral campus is not missing from the diverse series of lectures.

The lecture series is organized by the Zentrum Technik und Gesellschaft (ZTG), the departments Economic Education and Sustainable Consumption as well as Landscape Planning and Landscape Development at the TU Berlin, and the Fridays for Future student association at the TU Berlin. It receives support from the Climate Change Center Berlin-Brandenburg.


Time: 23 October 2023 to 5 February 2024, every Monday from 4:15 to 5:45 p.m.

Location: online via ZOOM (dial-in data can be found in the ISIS course)

The event is organised by Prof. Dr. Dr. Martina SchäferDr. Viola MusterProf. Dr. Stefan HeilandDr. Gabriele Wendorf and the student association Fridays For Future at TU Berlin.

3 credit points can be acquired for each module. These are made up as follows:

  •     Attendance time: 30 h (2 SWS)
  •     Preparation and follow-up: 30 h
  •     Exam preparation and examination (online multiple-choice test): 30 h

If you attend both modules, you can thus acquire 6 credit points.
