The climate crisis is now both scientifically and politically recognized and is becoming more tangible to individuals with each passing year. Yet the impact of climate change varies across regions of the world.
We invite you to learn about creative strategies in dealing with the environment and the climate crisis from international experts and to discuss interesting topics with them – informative, critical, and interdisciplinary. This is why the Referat for Environment of the Student Representation at TUM has organised this lecture series about environment – completely online again this Semester.

Winter semester 2021/22: Will technology save us all? A glimpse into a sustainable future
Biotechnology, artificial intelligence, quantum computing, blockchain, nuclear fusion, supersonic aircraft, autonomous electric driving: Big things seem to be in front of us, just waiting to revolutionize our daily lives. Today, we can already get a glimpse of what it’s like to live in this science fiction reality with unprecedented comfort: Electric cars will reduce our emissions, carbon capture and utilization will convert our CO2 into new products, nuclear fusion will help us meet our energy needs, and biotechnology will provide us with an abundance of food while protecting our health from dangerous diseases. But will these innovative technologies be able to save us from the many crises of our own making, such as biodiversity loss, increasing resource scarcity, and the already emerging effects of climate change as a whole? Or will they bring new problems and ultimately just shift them to other areas?
Do you want to learn more about the pros and cons of modern innovations and their global interactions? Then we invite you to discuss with experienced experts at the Environmental Lecture Series organized by the Environmental Department of the Student Council – informative, critical and interdisciplinary. Held entirely online again this semester.
