Project Lead:

Implementation in: Berlin, Denmark, Austria, Czech Republic
Duration: 2013-2015
Donors: European Commission / EuropeAid

We involve scientific institutions and companies in international activities, assist districts and cities in their certification as Fair Trade Towns and develop innovative teaching modules on the global dimension in higher education. We form a project partnership of four cities / municipalities and seven institutions in four European countries.


Sustainable development means considering environmental aspects equally with social and economic aspects. Sustainable economies therefore mean: we must leave our children and grandchildren an ecologically, socially and economically intact fabric behind. There cannot be one without the other.
