Living and Acting in a Changing World: University Open Air Campus at Catholic Day Erfurt

"The future belongs to the people of peace": this is the motto of the next Catholic Day, which will take place in Erfurt from 29 May to 2 June 2024. Preparations are in full swing and the University of Erfurt will also be taking part in this event – with an open air campus on 31 May in the "Brühler Garten", to which all interested parties are already cordially invited.

Many people experience the present as a time of almost unmanageable crises and upheavals: questions of climate protection, the challenges of digitalisation, successful childhood and youth, dealing with the experiences of the GDR in a united Germany. Researchers at the University of Erfurt are working on analysing these issues. The open air campus offers a day-long opportunity to talk to them about their research under the motto "Changing World Relations: Living and Acting in a Changing World".
