Climate crisis: Universities call for radical rethinking of energy and growth policy

Political pressure from all sides is necessary to meet the climate targets - the representatives of the Austrian universities emphasize the relevance of the report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

Rector Johan F. Hartle points out: "Our goals for future-oriented education and decolonization are made absurd by the threats of climate change. We will exercise our civil society role to uphold our educational goals - also to ensure that policy development continues at other levels."
