Green transformation – what do we mean by this?
We are going through a time of transformation, and changing our way of thinking. Humanity faces many major challenges and problems: the climate crisis, resource scarcity, water shortages, drought, natural disasters, malnutrition, diseases of civilization, and so on. These circumstances call for a high degree of adaptation and flexibility. But at Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences, we are not satisfied to sit back and be passive observers – we want to actively transform these challenges into positive opportunities, in keeping with the university’s motto “Education with tomorrow in mind”.
What if …?
… we developed innovative agricultural systems that are able to produce healthy and sustainable food in both rural and urban areas?
… we established a viable economy that focuses not only on companies, but also on social structures, thanks to participation and involvement?
… we were to design and produce sustainable food and nutrition in such a way that health, environmental, economic and social aspects can all be taken into account?
… we created the kind of sustainable urban and rural development that enables urban and rural areas to contribute to improving the quality of life?
At Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences – where the green transformation is being tackled – we want to address these issues. With this objective in mind, we bring together professors from various fields, such as agricultural science, agricultural economics, nutrition and home economics, nutritional science, landscape architecture, and landscape development, to create an interdisciplinary consortium to meet these challenges. The diagram below shows dissertation topics that are assigned to the four key areas. Clearly, interdisciplinary work is already underway to find solutions to specific problems:
We would like to invite you – a talent in this field – to become part of this movement. No matter where you are in your professional career: Master students, doctorates, and postdoctoral researchers are all welcome, as are faculty members. The Talent Academy – Talents for Green Transformation it is open to all interested, committed, and inquisitive individuals who are driven to engage and collaborate on the major issues of transformation.
