ITAS for Future - Institut öffnet seine Türen

On the occasion of the Global Climate Strike for Future, ITAS opens its doors to the public. On Thursday 19 September and on Friday 19 September between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m., pupils, students, and anyone else interested will have the opportunity to discuss their opinions and ideas directly with the researchers.

The event is intended as an “Open ITAS”, where technology assessment experts talk about their research work and discuss it with the visitors. The topics span from sustainable mobility and nutrition to questions of actively shaping the energy transition, creating livable cities, and bioeconomic alternatives to an oil-based economy. The schedule includes informal discussions and mini workshops. Participants can also create their own demonstration posters using the material provided in the ITAS foyer.

Because of the Park(ing) Days 2019, some of the offers on Friday 20 September will take place in front of the institute building on Karlstraße.

Mission of advising society

The Institute for Technology Assessment and Systems Analysis (ITAS) supports the demand by pupils in Germany, Europe, and worldwide for quick and more comprehensive measures for climate protection. “The young people’s request is absolutely legitimate, it is presented with great commitment and rests on a solid scientific foundation,” says Armin Grunwald, head of ITAS. “Therefore, we as researchers do not want to elegantly keep ourselves out, but fulfil our mission of ‘advising society’.”

Registration of groups and further information

Registration is not required. School classes are asked to give brief notice in advance, in order to ensure a smooth process.

If you have any questions, please contact Jonas Moosmüller from the “ITAS for Future” team (jonas.moosmueller∂kit.edu; 0721 608 26796).

The event is intended as an ‘Open ITAS’, where the experts for technology assessment can chat about their research work and discuss it with the visitors. The topics span from sustainable mobility and nutrition to questions of actively shaping the energy transition to bio-economic alternatives for an economy based on mineral oil. The schedule includes informal discussions and mini workshops. Participants can also make their own posters for the demonstration using the material provided in the ITAS foyer.
