Aftermovie 6th EC2U Forum in Jena

Take action in shaping a sustainable community for health, education, innovation, and research—in Jena and in Europe. That is the goal of the Community of Action Week which takes place from 22-26 May and is presented by the European University Alliance EC2U and the University of Jena Health Management. The main themes of the week arise from a holistic understanding of sustainability in the sense of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Students, university employees, the city administration, local businesses, and interested citizens are invited to participate in the ‘Community of Action’. 

Offers that are explicitly only in German are marked in the program with the addition "german". All other offers can be used regardless of the language or are also offered in English.

Information

During Community of Action Week (or Health Week), photographs and films will be taken by outside media and for University public relations. If you do not wish to be pictured, please tell the photographers and cameramen.
