Who are we?
We are a diverse bunch of students who are concerned with their university – more specific the environmental aspects of it – and therefore continuously strive for innovation in that regard.
What are our goals?
We want to push the topics environmentalism, climate protection and ecological sustainability across the faculties and ultimately make our study environment more sustainable.
Our main wish is to realize environmental and climate protection “bottom-up”, i.e. by improving small thing induce a big change.
In contrast to the “Referat für Umwelt” of the “AStA”, which has much bigger projects, we want to focus at the places we know the best: the Physics and the Mathematics-Informatics buildings. Frankly, who else knows better where to start improving than the people who daily engage with these places.
We would like to do more than just that, we want to raise awareness about environmentalism among peers. Therefore we organize events or similar activities and network with other sustainability initiatives.
What do we do?
Originating from a task force of the student council of the physics, in the autumn of 2021 we became an MPI unit.
Still, we proceed with our tasks just as dynamically as ever, with the addition, that now we are now responsible for the environmental shaping of the MPI as a whole, whereby we do collaborate with the other MPI units.
In general, we decide on what our tasks will be. Although there is a list of tasks which belong to our fixed routine, like the carrying out o f a theme night every semester. We also have plenty of one-time projects, which means it’s never always the same stuff and it never gets boring. Our greatest achievement until now is, that due to us, separate-waste bins were installed into the Physics building.
How are we doing it?
We meet regularly every 2 to 3 weeks for about 1 to 2 hours. During that time we discuss what has happened, what is about to happen and in the remaining time we work on our current projects.
The task allocation is simple: everybody can work on whatever project they are interested in and the amount of effort one puts in, is about as much, as one would like it to be.
Participate: hop-on hop-off concept!
In general everybody can take part in our meetings, to discuss with us, to express their opinion, to make us aware of problems, to initiate new projects or even just sit with us and listen. It’s no problem if you come just for one meeting or even for 10min! Everybody is welcome to take part, so don’t hesitate
