Registration for the 14th Sustainability Challenge
Students from all majors can apply for the 14th Sustainability Challenge by September 25th. The Sustainability Challenge is an interdisciplinary elective course with a focus on sustainability, SDGs & climate protection. Students at the Mozarteum University Salzburg can choose from two projects that are carried out with external partner organizations.
Become part of the Sustainability Challenge - the following projects are available:
Klima, Kunst und Wissenschaft – gemeinsam aktiv
in cooperation with the Climate Change Center Austria
In this project we want to explore together the question of whether and how a collaboration between artists and scientists could take us one step further. The topic should be discussed, analyzed and tried out in an activity freely chosen by the student group (panel discussion, artistic work, development of a game, podcast, or something completely different). We are happy to establish contacts with experts and activities from the CCCA network and UniNEtZ. Documenting the experiences and learnings enables us to build on these experiences.
Aktiv & engagiert – Demokratie und Menschenrechte durch innovative Formate stärken
in cooperation with the Salzburg cultural department
Which innovative formats at the interface between science and art can strengthen democracy and human rights education? Ideally, the project should involve people from the city of Salzburg in both the conception and implementation. Possible partner institutions are municipal compulsory schools (VS, MS) and kindergartens, adult education institutions, extracurricular child and youth work institutions, NGOs (e.g. peace office) or other knowledge and cultural institutions (e.g. city library, city archives, museums, universities, etc.).
