    European Solidarity Seminar: Climate Change and Action

    17.02. – 21.02.2022 – Lübeck

    Climate Change and rising global temperatures are no longer only concerns of scientists and small groups of environmental activists. The public seems to know, there is something happening to this planet and that there is a need for action. More and more people become part of movements such as Fridays for Future or Extinction Rebellion. Sustainability is the new focus, from personal lifestyle to business development. However, we find ourselves in discussions with people who believe climate change is nothing but a hoax, whilst certain regions in Europe and all around the world are already experiencing its impacts. Politicians seem to care more about being re-elected than bringing innovative and strict policies for climate protection on the way. But is that really the case? Where do we stand in Europe? What does the 1.5°C-goal mean? And what is our vision of a sustainable future? We want to ask ourselves how we can influence these developments in our own lifestyle but also whose responsibility sustainability is in general.

    European Solidarity Seminar: Classicism

    09.06. – 13.06.2022 – Lübeck

    How does social inequality manifest itself and what does the term classism actually mean? When people are treated differently because of their educational background, type of job or wage level, this form of discrimination is called classicism. Within this seminar, we would like to invite you to think about this topic and to reflect on your own social position and social background – because in order to achieve solidarity and equal opportunities in society we need to recognize this phenomenon and address it. Together we would also like to discuss what influence class and class origin has on our opinions and actions and how this might also affect, for example, our own social engagement.
