AbstractExcursions are an ideal framework for combining theoretical concepts of the environmental study program with the real world. An intensive discussion of environmental science and political questions takes place on three excursion days. The students learn about the specifics and challenges of a region and deepen their knowledge in exchange with experts.
ObjectiveStudents are able to
- describe concrete environmental science / environmental policy issues of a region and deepen their knowledge in collaboration with the respective experts.
- present different perspectives of a spatial question, and discuss and analyze different points of view.
- explain the interrelations between the different subjects of their environmental studies included in the excursions.
- describe future fields of work and activities of environmental scientists using concrete examples.
