Festival of sustainability That was TUmorrow Day 2022
TUmorrow Day took place on 21 and 22 June 2022 with a colourful programme. TU Braunschweig’s Green Office organised the day of action on the topic of sustainability. It started with the TUmorrow Awards, which recognise student groups and organisations at TU Braunschweig for their work on environmental protection and resource-conserving behaviour. In workshops, lectures and at the Market of Possibilities on the university square, visitors were also able to inform themselves extensively about the topic of sustainability. But there was also plenty of fun and entertainment. At the end of the event, the Science Slam in cooperation with Haus der Wissenschaft Braunschweig offered exciting short lectures on sustainability research. At the same time, the TUmorrow Beats in the courtyard of the Historic Main Building invited visitors to enjoy the summer evening with relaxed lounge music – of course, environmentally conscious from the solar-powered sound system.
To kick off the "TUmorrow Day", Sira Möller, coordinator of the Green Office, welcomed the audience to the TUmorrow Awards ceremony. The award was given to student initiatives, student representations and organisations at TU Braunschweig for their commitment to sustainability and environmental protection.
