Public outreach, the communication of science beyond the borders of university, is essential for the FFU. We organise regular funictions like for example the SchülerUni which gives pupils the opportunity to learn about climate change at university. Specialist conferences and symposiums contribute to spreading the knowledge of the FFU among broad groups of interested organisations and individuals. Additionally, there are several event series like the Berlin Conference, that are very popular.Below you can see some of our projects pertaining to the category "Publik Outreach". Please go to "List of all projects" for a complete overview.
The 2016 Berlin Conference invited scholars and practitioners to discuss questions arising from the new and universal global climate agreement adopted at the UN climate change conference in Paris on 12 December 2015. In the light of the continuity and change that Paris will bring, the discussions and knowledge exchange evolved around international climate policy and politics in the larger context of global governance and the challenges of a transformation towards sustainable development in a turbulent world.
The Environmental Policy Research Centre (FFU) of the Freie Universität Berlin organizes, with the financial support of the Fritz Thyssen Foundation, the conference "The EU renewable energy policy: challenges and opportunities".
