Science, Education, Culture & Tourism

The forum is to promote solution-oriented interdisciplinary dialogue. The preparation and management of projects regularly raise more in-depth issues which are directly and indirectly connected to the content of the project. The Forum picks up on these issues and places them in a wider context.

 

Sustainable development for the future requires clarity over the necessary steps, along with individuals being open to change. Science and research can provide important answers during reorientation of planning and decision-making processes on local, regional and global levels and support our development projects.

 

Education for Sustainable Development teaches children and adults sustainable ways of thinking and acting and enables people to make decisions for the future. How do my actions impact future generations, or life in other regions of the world? Which fish can I buy, without supporting the overfishing of oceans? How can society further develop in an economically viable and socially fair manner, without destroying the environment? What can I do? Our educational projects offer examples.

 

Travel broadens the mind. Tourism also has the potential for the sustainable promotion of target regions and the generation of income, but can simultaneously also lead to exploitation, social injustice and the consumption of natural resources. The planning, organisation and management of tourism have both positive and negative effects on the population of a region. How can sustainable tourism work? Our project partners are working on the answers.
