Flattening two curves: university in times of climate crisis and corona pandemic.
The Klimaschau shows the range of potential that could be tapped during the Klimasemester in summer 2020 at the University of Applied Sciences in order to collectively address the challenges of the climate crisis and develop transdisciplinary approaches and sustainable actions for the here and now.

Species to Species Services
Pollinating tree blossoms by hand, carrying frogs across the street or artificially multiplying “the last of their kind”. The loss of species creates gaps in the ecological network, which people often try to bridge with enormous effort. Nature is normally regarded as a service provider for people to purify air and water or providing food. Economists define and quantify this as ecosystem services and nature capital. Complex technical infrastructures are also used to monitor nature for its protection and to make the findings available to humans. Big Animal Data, for example, is collected from tens of thousands of animals and sent in real time so that we can follow their routes or be warned of earthquakes. With these new technical possibilities, private individuals can make friends at the same time with wild birds via Facebook or follow shark personalities live through the oceans.
This class is about the concept of convivial communities and how we can create new ways of living together with other species that are inclusive and sustainable. While critically reflecting economic evaluation of biodiversity as a service provider, we also look at historically grown cultures that have a different understanding of coexistence with their environments. How can we unlearn world views that we have become so accustomed to and imagine and design for new forms of conviviality?
