Social Sustainability | October 1-29, 2022

This Blended Intensive Programme (BIP) is designed for students interested in exploring the intersections between health care, social services and sustainability through the framework of Planetary Health.

During this BIP the students deal with different social challenges and discuss possible solutions. During the joint attendance phase in Würzburg, the considerations are placed in a regional and historical context
