"Together we develop solutions for everyday life."

The project SchülerUni, organised by ffu (Forschungzentrum für Umweltpolitik), aims to make the concepts of sustainability and climate protection come alive for students and teachers.

How do you make energy out of wind and cow dung? What have mashed potatoes and roast beef got to do with climate change? What does the tree trunk from the Grunewald tell us about global warming? How can we make the world fair and sustainable in the long term?

These and other future-oriented issues on sustainable development are the subjects for our SchülerUni program.

From March 2012 until the end of 2015 this one-week program is offered in eight schoolchildren universities, always in spring and autumn. For the occasion, the FUB makes available lecture halls, seminar rooms, laboratories, solar roofs, the weather station and the Botanical Garden.
This program enables youths to experience the key themes of sustainable development through experiments around renewable energies, energy tours, art workshops, future workshops, writing workshops, simulations, role-plays and field trips.
The SchülerUni programme 2013 is thematically based on the annual theme mobility of the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development.
