Flattening two curves: university in times of climate crisis and corona pandemic.
The climate show presented the results of the Climate Semester - Utopias for the Present - in a digital exhibition and as an online event on Juli 17th 2020.
At the FH Potsdam, in the summer semester 2020, the climate semester, the challenges of the climate crisis were jointly examined and transdisciplinary approaches and sustainable options for action for the here and now were developed.

The course participants filtered concise topics and headings and discussed them in small working groups. Each group then condensed a chosen topic, reduced it to the most important points and presented the problem in a creative way. At the same time, ideas and recommendations for overcoming or reducing the problem were developed and presented. The presented contents should be based on scientific discussions and verifiable facts which serve as a reference.
A short thesis consisting of seven points was written for each theme: Topic/headline, short description of the problem, causes, solutions, ideas & recommendations, facts/references and intended form of realization, which were presented to the course group via video.
The type of presentation and realisation was freely selectable (print, film, 3D model), but the result had to be comprehensible for an external observer.
