Students, employees, external guests, professional audience

The Environmental Department of the Student Representation of TUM invites you to the weekly lecture series on the environment: In the summer semester, the focus is on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). How can these goals still be achieved? Where are the necessary climate protection measures?

Our experts will talk about the progress that has already been made to achieve these goals. So, let's get inspired, let’s learn, let’s gain hope, and let’s unite for sustainability. Because we only have one home. One chance.

Admission is free.


Environmental lecture series

The Environmental Lecture Series is an interdisciplinary, public lecture series organized by the Environmental Department of the TUM Student Union on a voluntary basis. Since 1985, speakers have been giving lectures on the topic of sustainability, for example on the aspects of technical environmental protection, health, consumer and climate protection. The event offers students and lecturers as well as the non-university public the opportunity to learn about and discuss these topics and research results at a scientific level.
