    Speakers

    With its focus on energy, the TUD Lectures series of the winter semester will address the significant challenges posed by the comprehensive transformation process that was triggered by the war in Ukraine. In light of the complexity of the crisis, the TUD Lectures adopt an interdisciplinary approach from multiple perspectives with a series of lectures.

    The series will kick off with the question: “What changes do living and learning undergo in light of social inequality, rising prices, and energy scarcity?”. In his presentation, Prof. Dr John Grunewald (Head of the Institute for Building Climatology at TU Dresden) and Juliane Dziumla (Associate Sustainability Officer at UNU-FLORES) will take a closer look at housing and construction and will explore how to increase social and ecological justice in this field. The focus will be on student life and learning in the context of social inequality.

    Background

    In 2021, the Department of University Culture launched the TUD Lectures series, in which experts from a broad range of disciplines at the TU Dresden examine current topics. In lectures of up to 1 1/2 hours, the experts present their knowledge in a transparent and understandable way. The TUD Lectures are addressed to the TUD community and all interested participants.
