Event: Panel Discussion on Sustainable Research
Date/Time: 2021-06-02T14:00:00Z2021-06-02T15:30:00Z

Location: Online
Description: Here, we want to discuss with you what role sustainability should play in research in general and in the Leibniz Association in particular. To start the discussion and to identify potential fields of action, like implementing grassroot initiatives at individual institutes while also promoting administrative actions and developing new policies, we have invited four experts on sustainability as panelists:

Diana Born, atmosfair gGmbH
“Imagine you wake up in a sustainable world: how does it feel, how do you act? To me, sustainability means to envision such a system, feel the joy it gives me and use this motivation as fuel to pull it closer every day.”

Juliane Schumacher, Leibniz Institute Zentrum Moderner Orient (ZMO)
“For me, Sustainability means working in solidarity for a just, livable and durable future. Sustainability means respect – for other humans, now and in future, and beyond humans, for the planet and all its inhabitants.”

Falk Schmidt, German Science Platform Sustainability 2030
“Sustainability is at its core about providing current and future generations with at least the same if not more options / alternatives for living a decent life in an autonomous way.”

Andreas Otto, Leibniz Institute of Ecological Urban and Regional Development (IÖR) and Leibniz Arbeitskreis Sustainability Management
“We must firmly anchor the guiding principle of sustainable development in all our activities, not only through research topics, but in the entire work process and operational organisation of scientific institutions. To quote the Leibniz Association’s Sustainability Mission Statement, it is therefore important to establish and continuously develop a ‘culture of sustainability’.”
