Environmental Education


Communicating sustainability, making environmental topics comprehensible, providing insights into modern environmental research and generating enthusiasm for it – these are just some of the cornerstones of our environmental education at the UFZ. The aim of our work is to contribute to achieving sustainability goals within this framework as well. Our activities in environmental education take place on a regional, national and international level and range from research collaborations with funded projects to local events. You will find an overview on these pages.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about our offers or activities!
