At the University of Jena, a variety of courses and specializations are available that deal with sustainability from many different angles. Therefore, a wide range of sustainability-related classes is available for students.


Here you can now find courses related to sustainability right in the Friedolin portal.

This list is not complete yet. So if you attend a sustainability-related class, feel free to make the lecturer aware of the possibility to add the class there. This will help other interested students to find sustainability-related classes more quickly. If you have any questions about this, please feel free to contact the Green Office.

Sustainability-related courses in the winter semester 2022/23

Also this semester there is offered a variety of lectures or seminars on sustainability-related topics. Here you will find a selection.

Whether the events are a regular part of your study plan, whether you want to further your education in the field of sustainability, or whether you want to broaden your horizons as a guest student - the following exciting sustainability-related classes will be held at the University of Jena this winter semester. For the possibility of participation outside of your core studies, please contact your departmental advisor and the respective lecturers.
