German+ Sustainability

Crises as opportunities – again this year’s topic for the course “Deutsch+” is sustainability in different areas of life in 2022. To explore this subject, we will be using resources in and around Wittenberg.

The German Federal Environment Agency, Wittenberg’s public utility, a producer of sustainable energy storage systems, and the FairTrade label will be a part of exploring questions of sustainability today. The language learning component of this course will revolve around the course’s topic. We will also benefit from hearing from participants as they report about their own countries’ experiences.
