BTU4Future Festival 2023 - 9./10.2.2023

The BTU4FUTURE Festival brings together research, engagement, Cottbus culture, students, faculty, city residents and all interested parties for a two-day, open exchange on topics related to climate protection and sustainable development. JOIN IN AND HELP SHAPE OUR ENVIRONMENT!

Climate protection and sustainable development are among the key challenges facing contemporary societies. Politics, business and civil society are equally called upon to confront the causes and consequences of climate change and to engage with the political project of sustainable development.

Together we will get active in panel discussions and do-it-yourself actions and learn about solutions for a better future. Visit climate killer locations virtually with VR glasses or work on a cold frame and a rain bank. The "Quizlabor", known far beyond Cottbus culture, tests our knowledge on climate, nature and animal protection and in a second-hand swap party our commitment shines in a new look. Take a closer look at the program!

The festival starts on the 9th of February 2023 at 1pm. at the Startblock B2 startup center (Siemens-Halske-Ring 2, 03046 COTTBUS) as well as at FabLab Cottbus (Walther-Pauer-Strasse 7, 03046 Cottbus), which is a 2-minute walk away, and ends on the 10th of February 2023 at 3pm.

Our exciting PROGRAM is online and there are some interesting events and workshops in English!
