We aspire to make our basic research in physics accessible to an interested public. Our goal is to inspire young people and to inform them about our study programs. The working group is an open project. Whether scientific staff, employees or students - everyone from the Department of Physics can participate and contribute ideas for designing the website, setting-up events and reporting on classic and social media.
If you have good ideas or would like to actively support us, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In December 2019, Freie Universität Berlin (FUB) declared the climate emergency; it wants to become climate-neutral by 2025. At the beginning of 2020, the Sustainability Working Group has been established at the Department of Physics. It has set itself the goal of examining the activities of the department with regard to their ecological sustainability. The working group wants to advance and make visible new as well as existing efforts in this area.
It is an aim of the working group to assess the current resource consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, in order to make proposals for reduction or compensation schemes. Areas that the working group wants to address include air travel, power consumption (e.g. of large computer clusters), material consumption and waste production.
Moreover, the working group will deal with the following questions and collect answers centrally:
We are open to new suggestions and impulses. If you would like to support the department's sustainability strategy with good ideas and projects, please do not hesitate to contact us at email@example.com.
Do you feel like getting involved more deeply in this topic yourself? The working group is always open for new members or interested persons. Send also for this simply a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The following core members of the Sustainability Working Group members have been elected by the department council (Fachbereichsrat):
To house the department's groups during the the extensive renovations of the building of the Physics department in the future an interim building is planned. This working group is tasked with planning and coordinating the work and can be reached at email@example.com.
