Sustainability

Sustainable development at the HTWG Konstanz

Whether climate change, scarcity of resources or global inequality: Developing and implementing strategies for the future that do these challenges justice is a central responsibility of our times - and particularly for the younger generation.

Our students help decide how we’re going to live in the future. In a globalized world, our actions not only affect our direct surroundings, but also other parts of the world as well as future generations. We want to prepare our students for this reality.

The HTWG Konstanz aims to contribute to sustainable development. We want to provide our graduates with professional and life opportunities by teaching new skills and competences:

  • understanding systematic interrelationships
  • the competence to deal with complex systems
  • the ability to reflect on one’s guiding principles and values

Our focus on future issues at the HTWG Konstanz - University of Applied Sciences benefits from our broad range of fields, our interdisciplinary and international approach, as well as always seeking the connection between theory and practice. We see ourselves as partners for sustainability organizations and activities taking place in the Lake Constance region and beyond.
