Headline: Potsdam Summer School 2022

Modern pluralistic societies face many challenges. In 2022, the participants of the Potsdam Summer School will discuss pathways towards a sustainable and just transformation with a focus on climate, energy, and nature in a changing world.

With its overarching theme “TOWARDS A SUSTAINABLE TRANSFORMATION – CLIMATE; ENERGY AND NATURE IN A CHANGING WORLD “- this Summer School will continue the transdisciplinary and interactive event series that has been held annually in Potsdam since 2014. The aim is to bring together talented early-career scientists and young professionals from the private sector, governmental agencies, and non-governmental organisations from many different parts of the world to discuss frontier research questions on future sustainable development. In this context, the Potsdam Summer School provides a unique opportunity for all participants to foster international cooperation and an exchange of ideas.

The issues span a multitude of disciplines and invite stakeholders from the public and private sector to get involved. The programme will comprise lectures, various discussion formats, and interactive project activities, including hands-on demonstrations, workshops, and group projects.

In partnership with GeoX and the City of Potsdam, the 2022 Potsdam Summer School will be jointly organised by the Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research (AWI), the Helmholtz-Centre Potsdam – GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences, the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies (IASS), the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK), and the University of Potsdam. Experts, stakeholders, and guest lecturers from high level national and international institutes and organisations will contribute knowledge and insights to the Summer School programme.
