Climate change poses not only technical challenges but also enormous social challenges worldwide. In response to this, we at the Humboldt Foundation have created a binding framework for our work: a Sustainability Agenda to ensure climate-neutral development for our sponsorship activities, our network and our headquarters. For us as a globally active network organisation, sustainable mobility is a key issue that we recently discussed with 150 participants from the science community, society and the political sector at the virtual Humboldt New Mobility Conference.
We also promote sustainable solutions in the area of science communication, such as by arranging collaboration between Humboldt Fellows and young journalists at the Humboldt Communication Lab.
In this newsletter you can learn more about the excellent reports generated during ComLab#3 “Sustainability and Social Justice”, the positive effects of international research collaboration, and the proposals that the Humboldt Foundation is making for the new legislative period in Germany.
